Uncovering the power loss mechanisms of electromagnetic energy conversion

Most of the world’s power needs are currently met by electrical energy. Around 30 % of the generated electrical energy passes through a power electronic converter and this number is expected to rise to 80 % in the coming 10-15 years. Power electronic converters refer to the systems and products involved in converting and controlling the flow of electrical energy. The physical phenomena related to power losses in the magnetic cores used in these systems are poorly understood, and computationally efficient models for losses in windings are missing. The EU-funded MULTIMAG project aims to shed further insight into the mechanisms involved by developing efficient multi-scale modelling tools. Project results should help improve the energy efficiency and power density of power electronic devices by minimising power losses.
