Power Magnetics @ High Frequency
Saturday March 18 2023
Prior to APEC 2023
Orange County Convention Center
Orlando, FL 32819
The PSMA Magnetics Committee and IEEE PELS are currently planning to conduct the eighth "Power Magnetics @ High Frequency" Workshop on Saturday, March 18, 2023, which is the day before and at the same venue as APEC 2023 in Orlando, FL.
The purpose and focus of the workshop is to identify the latest improvements in magnetic materials, coil (winding) design, construction and fabrication, evaluation and characterization techniques and modelling and simulation tools. The Workshop will target the advancements that are deemed necessary for power magnetics to meet the technical expectations and requirements of new and evolving market applications. These are driven by higher operating frequencies and emerging topologies together with continuous advances in circuits topologies and semiconductor devices.
The target audiences for the 2023 Power Magnetics @ High Frequency Workshop include the designers of power magnetic components for use in electronic power converters, those who are responsible to implement the most technologically advanced power magnetic components 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 people involved in the supply chain for the power magnetics industry ranging from manufacturers of magnetic materials and structures, fabricators of magnetic components, providers of modelling and simulation software as well as manufacturers of test and characterization equipment.
The theme of the 2023 Power Magnetics @ High Frequency Workshop will be magnetic component design across applications ranging from milliwatts to megawatts. The workshop will address applications areas such as IoT, servers, integrated voltage regulators (IVR), transportation electrification, wireless charging for mobile and electric vehicles and solid-state transformers. The workshop will also include presentations and demonstrations to address specific technical issues relative to high voltage and high current design such as corona, insulation, encapsulation, etc., that were identified in the 2022 workshop survey.
The morning session of the 2023 Power Magnetics @ High Frequency workshop will open with a keynote presentation addressing the diversity of magnetics specifications across different application spaces. The keynote presentation will be followed by several lecture presentations regarding magnetics design for various application spaces such as energy harvesting, wearables, wireless power transfer, and high-power high voltage. The afternoon session will open with a keynote presentation addressing practical design considerations such as temperature rise, safety agency requirements and reliability beyond the technical performance specifications followed by several presentations regarding advances in insulation materials, design for manufacturability, safety, and reliability. In addition to the brief Q&A period after each presentation, there will be a panel of the presenters at the end of the session who will address attendee questions in more detail.
During the provided breakfast, lunch and the networking hour at the end of the workshop there will be interactive tabletop technology demonstrations each addressing specific technical disciplines and capabilities consistent with the workshop agenda. Interaction between the attendees and the presenters is highly encouraged during this portion of agenda as a segue from the opening keynote presentation and the technical issues session.
If you would like to participate as a presenter for the technical demonstration session, please contact the organizing committee through PSMA via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with a description of your proposed technical capabilities topic. The preferred topics for technical demonstrations must be related to the following themes: demonstration samples of new design concepts, test equipment used either for product development, characterization, manufacturing, verification of safety and reliability requirements, near magnetic field coupling, thermal issues and emerging magnetic materials and structures. We are limited to no more than ten technology demonstration stations.
As in past years there will be a limited number of registration fee waivers for qualified students. Interested students may apply for the registration fee waiver at the following url: https://psma.com/power-magnetics-high-frequency-student-registration-fee-waiver-2023
