Web-Based Magnetic DesignAbstractMagnetic components such as inductors and transformers are undoubtedly a critical componentin many electrical engineering systems. Yet, there seems to be a lack of coverage of magneticdesign topics in electrical engineering curriculum around the world. In fact, only a fewuniversities in the US offer a course where students get the opportunity to design and build theirown inductor or transformer. Hence, it is not surprising to observe that many electricalengineering students graduate without having the knowledge, skill or experience on even thedesigning and building of a very simple inductor. This paper presents a web-based magneticdesign which serves as a learning tool for students to understand the basic design procedures ofdesigning and building commonly used magnetic components such as transformers, gappedinductors, and toroidal inductors. The website may also be used as a teaching aid for faculty whoteach a course in magnetic design. The web-site further allows users the flexibility to have newinformation added into the website such as new magnetic core configurations and core materialdata. The paper will first explain the two empirical techniques used in the web-based magneticdesign. The paper will then describe the user’s interface for entering the necessary data for thedesign as well as an example of designing a simple inductor.
