Nanocrystalline soft magnetic materials tested in the OBC

As part of a joint international research project with CBMM, the world leader in production and commercialization of Niobium products, innolectric has published a study on increasing the efficiency of charging components using nanocrystalline magnetic materials. Innovative soft magnetic cores with niobium were analyzed in direct application in the innolectric On-Board Charger. The results of the study are now available.

Interesting tests for the further development of the innolectric portfolio

Felix Burmeister, system engineer responsible for the project at innolectric, was already confident during the tests in the in-house laboratory: “Whether on land or water – our customers already cover a very wide range of different vehicles and fields of application. We want to offer them a product that offers great added value across its many properties. We are delighted to have gained a partner with a large network in CBMM, with whom we can take our technology a decisive step forward. We are excited to see what new ways of optimization the new magnetic materials will enable, first in our laboratory and later in the field!”

Material comparison study published

The results of the study show that innolectric is able to successfully reduce the size and weight of the common mode chokes (CMC) for use in the innolectric On-Board Charger by using nanocrystalline materials. This also represents a major step for the further development of charging components in the innolectric portfolio. One of the key findings is that, despite a significant reduction in core volume of more than 50 % and minimization of weight by over 60 %, there was no loss of efficiency or electromagnetic compatibility. In a direct comparison with conventional ferrite-based magnets, the nanocrystalline material therefore performs significantly better when used in the field of electromobility.
