This is the fourth edition of a classic reference on transformers and inducers. It begins by providing the basic fundamentals of magnetics, followed by an explanation of the design using the Kg or Ap approach. It also covers topics such as laminations, tape cores, powder cores and ferrites, and iron alloys. The author offers practical coverage on designing transformers, with step-by-step directions and several comparison tables and graphics.
"Every transformer designer needs to have a copy of this book. Not only will it be helpful for designing transformers, but it provides an in-depth background of the fundamentals of transformer magnetic, including the latest designs used in modern switching power supplies." -John J. Shea, IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, November/December 2012, Vol. 28, No. 6 Praise for the Previous Edition: "Not only would the expert working on a specific design benefit from this handbook, but also the general reader would get a very good working knowledge on transformer design because the book covers fundamentals and magnetic material characteristics in a very clearly written, easy-to-read style. ... Along with all of the practical design examples, the book is filled with clear and well-annotated illustrations and circuit schematics that provide great insight; the many references make this book a must have for anyone designing transformers or inductors." -IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, Feb. 2005 "This book is a must for engineers doing magnetic design. Whether you are working on high "rel" state of the art design or high volume, low cost production, this book will help you." -Robert G. Noah, Application Engineering Manager (retired), Magnetics, Division of Spang and Company
