Design methodology and optimization of a medium frequency transformer for high power DC-DC applications
Paper in proceedings, 2015

The high power medium frequency transformer (HPMFT) is one of the key elements of an isolated, bi-directional DC-DC converters in applications such as future all-DC offshore wind farms, traction and solid state transformers. This paper describes a design methodology taking into account the loss calculation, isolation requirements and thermal management. Incorporating this design methodology, an optimization process with a wide range of parameter variations is applied on a design example to find the highest power density while the efficiency, isolation, thermal and leakage inductance requirements are all met.
