Iron Loss of the Inductors
Since inductors used in power electronics circuits are magnetized under completely different conditions from sinusoidal alternating voltage/current, the manner of occurrence of iron loss is often greatly different. In this chapter, we clarify the difference between the magnetizing modes of the transformer and inductor used in the power electronics circuit and introduce recent research examples on the method of measuring and calculating the iron loss of the inductor.
