The solutions provided by Exxelia's Smart Magnetic project are revolutionizing the field of electrical converters by offering unparalleled performance in terms of power density.
This advance makes it possible to design more compact, lighter converters. However, the advantages of this technology are not limited to these fundamental aspects. In this article, we will explore in detail the multiple functional, economic and environmental benefits offered by Exxelia’s Smart Magnetic technology.
FUNCTIONAL ADVANTAGES FOR INCREASED RELIABILITY:
The Smart Magnetics project makes it possible in particular to optimize the Dual Active Bridge topology which requires the combination of a transformer and a choke.
The Dual Active Bridge converter is a technology that is becoming widespread because it allows bidirectional power transmission. This meets the challenges of electrical systems (recovery + supply of energy),
Integrating the Dual Active Bridge (DAB) transformer and choke into a single component has significant functional advantages. Unlike assembling two separate components, using an integrated component eliminates interconnections. The repeatability and reproducibility of the processes guarantee perfect control of the electrical characteristics, and ensure optimum performance of the converter. In addition, this consolidation reduces the number of components required, which improves the reliability of the final product.
