Abstract

A new SPICE-compatible behavioral model for magnetic controlled inductors was developed and verified experimentally. The new model is based on the gyrator-capacitor scheme in which the nonlinear permeance is emulated by a non-linear capacitor that is built by using a 'transformer' circuit. The gyrator-capacitor approach can be used to evaluate an arbitrary magnetic circuit, and the non-linear 'transformer' circuit makes possible the modeling the nonlinearity of the ferromagnetic core. The core saturation and hysteresis are reproduced by applying the core manufacturer's data. A current-controlled inductor was used to test the proposed model. Close agreement was obtained between the simulation and experimental results.
