Power Magnetics @ High Frequency
Saturday March 19 2022
Prior to APEC 2022
George R Brown Convention Center
Houston, Texas

The PSMA Magnetics Committee and IEEE PELS are currently planning to hold the seventh "Power Magnetics @ High Frequency" workshop on Saturday, March 19, 2022, which is the day before and at the same venue as APEC 2022 in Houston, TX.

The purpose and focus of this workshop are to identify the latest improvements in magnetic materials, coil (winding) design, construction and fabrication, evaluation and characterization techniques and modelling and simulation tools. The focus is to target the advancements deemed necessary by the presenters and the workshop participants for power magnetics to meet the technical expectations and requirements of new market applications for higher operating frequencies and emerging topologies driven by continuous advances in circuits topologies and semi-conductor devices.
 
The target audiences for the 2022 Power Magnetics @ High Frequency Workshop include the designers of power magnetic components for use in electronic power converters responsible to implement the most technologically advanced power magnetic components that are necessary to achieve higher power densities, specific physical aspect ratios such as low profile, higher power efficiencies and improved thermal performance. The target audiences also include individuals involved in the supply chain for the power magnetics industry ranging from manufacturers of magnetic materials and magnetic structures, fabricators of magnetic components, providers of modelling and simulation software as well as manufacturers of test and characterization equipment.
 
The 2022 Power Magnetics @ High Frequency Workshop will open with a keynote presentation by Dr. Charles Sullivan of Dartmouth College followed by several lecture presentations regarding effects of magnetic core geometries on magnetics characteristics such as inductance, saturation, power losses and coupling. The afternoon session will open with a keynote presentation followed by several presentations focused on design for manufacturability, safety, and reliability. In addition to a brief Q&A period after each individual presentation, there will be a panel of the presenters at the end of the session to address topics requiring more detail as deemed by the workshop attendees.
 
During breakfast and lunch there will be a joint interactive session available of tabletop technology demonstrations covering both Magnetics and Capacitor technologies that address specific technical disciplines and capabilities consistent with the workshop agenda. Each of the technology demonstration stations will include a ten-minute presentation at fifteen-minute intervals. The attendees are encouraged to interact with the presenters during this portion of agenda as a segue to enhance and expand the technical presentation sessions.
 
The 5th Annual 2022 PSMA/PELS Capacitor Workshop, "How Materials and Environmental Effects Influence Capacitor Performance" will be held concurrently with the Power Magnetics @ High Frequency Workshop. Continuing the tradition from previous years, the workshops will share the demonstration area. New this year, a joint Magnetics and Capacitors rap session will address the trade-offs between choice of magnetic components and capacitors. This Rap Session will be held during the networking reception after the afternoon technical presentation sessions have been completed. The workshop attendees will be encouraged to submit questions to the panel of magnetics and capacitor experts for the Rap Session.
 
If anyone would like to participate as a presenter for the technical demonstration session, please contact the organizing committee through PSMA via e-mail to power@psma.com with a description of your proposed technical capabilities topic. The preferred topics for technical demonstration session should be related to the following themes: computer aided design and simulation including manufacturing, safety, and reliability requirements, near magnetic field coupling, thermal issues and emerging magnetic materials and structures.
 
There will be up to four student waivers for registration fees. Students can apply for a waiver at www.psma.com/webforms/power-magnetics-high-frequency-student-registration-fee-waiver-2022.
 
If you are interested to financially support the workshop as a partner, please contact the organizing committee through PSMA via e-mail to power@psma.com .
