Ferrite cores are made of ferrite material. Their magnetic properties are dependent on their permeability. High frequencies can cause demagnetization. Heating the core above its Curie point or mechanically shocking it can also cause demagnetization. As a result, the permeability of ferrite begins to decrease exponentially. This is a natural process in ferrites and is accelerated by high temperatures and mechanical shock.
The impedance characteristics of a ferrite core may reveal a resistive component at its operating frequency. This resistive component reduces noise, which is a significant issue in many electronic applications. The higher the loss, the better the noise suppression. It is important to understand that the impedance characteristics of a ferrite core should match the operating frequency.
Inductive devices can operate at several MHz switching frequencies. However, high frequency operation lowers power conversion efficiency and generates more heat. High frequency operation also causes the transformer's core to lose its magnetic flux. A lower core loss results in better stability and lower temperature. It is also important to understand how the core works in high frequency applications.
Power transformers often use ferrite cores. Because ferrites are resistant to high current, they have a low eddy current loss. They are also effective in noise filtering. Since they can convert noise into heat, ferrite cores can be used in these applications as well. In addition to power inductors, ferrite cores are also widely used in pulse transformers, linear filters, and differential mode inductors.
Large ferrite cores often require custom-designed structures. Such structures should be designed based on physical size and material information. Larger MnZn ferrite cores are studied in this thesis to determine how these larger cores affect the performance of power sources in high frequency applications. The increased power dissipation of the structure can result in an increase in the device's inductance at higher frequencies. In addition, the increased flux redistribution at high frequencies causes a change in inductance. Therefore, it is essential to ensure that you have complete material information to calculate a device's impedance.
The losses caused by high frequency ferrite cores depend on the material and frequency. In general, core losses are proportional to the total flux swing (B) and operating frequency. They occur due to residual losses and eddy current in the core material. In high frequency applications, iron powder cores are more susceptible to core losses than other types of core materials.
When choosing a ferrite core, you should look for its maximum saturation, L value, and magnetic flux density. These should be high enough to protect against abnormal current while maintaining low resistance. Also, the core should be designed to minimize voltage drops and heat dissipation. Moreover, high frequency ferrite cores should be able to handle high currents without losing their intrinsic properties.
