A little thought on magnetics can save a lot of energy

Electromagnetic components like transformers and chokes are considered unglamorous, so frequently insufficient thought is given to their selection. Engineers will often simply re-use a device or even a power supply from a previous project, ignoring the fact that new and better components are available, allowing them to save weight, improve efficiency or reduce size. This article reviews some recent developments that are creating new optimised solutions across a range of applications.
