4.0 Flyback Converter Transformer Design

In this chapter of the tutorial, you will design the transformer for a 310V-to-5V, 2A output, self-oscillating flyback converter. You will learn:

  • About the new Multi-Level Lossy Transformer (Version 8.4+) component in SIMPLIS, available starting from version 8.40.
  • How to design a transformer using SIMPLIS MDM and set it up for post-processing.
  • Learn how to perform MDM post-processing after a circuit simulation to obtain a detailed inductor loss break-down.
  • How to analyze the post-processing results to refine the transformer design.
  • How to save and load magnetic component geometries in SIMPLIS MDM.
