Not only would the expert working on a specific design benefit from this handbook, but also the general reader would get a very good working knowledge on transformer design because the book covers fundamentals and magnetic material characteristics in a very clearly written, easy-to-read style. … Along with all of the practical design examples, the book is filled with clear and well-annotated illustrations and circuit schematics that provide great insight; the many references make this book a must have for anyone designing transformers or inductors. -IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, Feb. 2005
Extensively revised and expanded to present the state-of-the-art in the field, this Third Edition presents a practical approach to transformer and inductor design—extensively covering essential topics such as the area product, Ap, core geometry, and Kg while providing complete information on magnetic materials and core characteristics using step-by-step design examples.
