Hi,

I would like to know the maximum power at the inductor(L2)(The inductor value is 10uH) that we have taken as per the datasheet recommended value, considering that the VCC1 is having the max voltage and it is sensed across the BCKSW and current at VCC1 is max, what is the maximum power that we get across this L2, Considering the inductor power dissipation, The inductor DCR value is 0.18ohm and L2=10uH

Solved! Go to Solution.

Hello,

There are three parts to the inductor losses, core loss, DC resistance loss and AC resistance loss.

Losses can be calculated based on the below formula*P_loss_Inductor = Pcore + Pdcr + Pacr***Core loss***Pcore (mW) = K1 * f^x * B^y * Ve*

Where:

K1 = Constant for core material

f = Frequency in kHz

B = Peak Flux Density in kGauss

x = Frequency exponent

y = Flux Density exponent

Ve = Effective core volume (cm3)

**Dc resistance loss***Pdcr (W) = Irms^2 * DCR*

Where:

Irms = The rms value of the peak current applied to

the inductor

DCR = The dc resistance of the inductor**AC resistance loss***Pacr (W) = Irms2 × ACR*

Where:

Irms = The rms value of the **peak-peak** ripple current

applied to the inductor

ACR = The ac resistance of the inductor

Inductor constants should be available in the inductor datasheet.

Hint,

AC winding resistance values are not always readily available from magnetics vendors. AC resistance loss is less compared to other two components, Hence initial calculations can be with only core loss and DC resistance loss.

Vishnu
