Design and fabrication of magnetic cores having permeability gradient using additive manufacturing

Electromagnetism - Electrical engineering Engineering sciences Materials and applications


As a major technological research institute, the CEA-Liten plays a decisive role in the development of future technologies for the energy transition and the limitation of greenhouse gas emissions. The laboratory develops magnetic components working at high frequency (> 100 kHz) for an integration in compact power electronics converters. Today, the discrete magnetic components are among the most bulky parts in the power converters (~30-40%) and they are responsible of almost 40-50% of the heat losses. The advent of wide band gap semiconductors (SiC or GaN) increases the switching frequency to values above 100 kHz. This strategy helps to reduce, theoretically, the dimensions of the passives but the thermal constraints (due to the losses produced at a higher frequency) and the electromagnetic compatibility (EMC; due to the noise emerging from faster switching commutations) may constitute an issue (in a system approach). In this sense, the developments of new architectures (based on advanced core geometries or clever magnetic materials arrangements) may constitute a breakthrough. The diversity of present cores and fabrication technologies permit small incremental gains on these magnetic components integrations. Additive manufacturing is a very emerging fabrication process that allow not only developing new core geometry but also, the adjustment of core composition (by allowing the deposition of layers containing different ferrite powder composition). The post-doctoral fellow will work on the design of a core having a permeability gradient and on its electrical and thermal characterizations. The post-doctoral fellowship is of 2 years duration located in the city of Grenoble (France) with a minimum wage of 40 k€ per year.
