Selecting the optimum cores for SMPS transformers

The selection of the magnetic components, especially transformer cores, to be used in a Switch Mode Power Supply (SMPS) design is the most crucial element. Core choice is generally based upon the application’s power requirements, the switching topology, and the frequency required. The power requirement and choosing the suitable topology of SMPS’ is the first …
