Abstract

Almost all power electronic converters require magnetic devices and some
properties of the converters can be controlled with magnetics. New
magnetic materials enable implementation of magnetic control of
converters also in high switching frequency applications. The presented
paper gives an overview about controllability of magnetic devices in
theory and practice, simulation approaches and examples. The focus is on
electrically controllable magnetic devices. This means that an
additional control winding is wound on or integrated into the magnetic
core of the device. This additional winding is used to control the
inductive behavior of the device by injecting a current. The different
basic control approaches of magnetic devices are explained theoretically
and demonstrated experimentally by laboratory prototypes. Several
controllable magnetic devices were tested in order to evaluate the
applicability of the different control methods. The control techniques
were demonstrated also with different core materials to address
different applications. Especially ferromagnetic alloys and ferrite
materials are in focus of the investigation. Moreover, first approaches
for the modelling and simulation of controllable magnetic devices are
given in the paper.
