Movement toward grid level integration of distributed generation and storage systems requires power electronics to effectively facilitate two-way power conversion. These next generation power systems must compete with existing systems in both cost and reliability. Converters will likely require galvanic isolation to decouple subsystems and as low frequency transformers require large footprints, higher frequency switching can increase power density as described by Faraday’s law. The use of nanocomposite soft magnetic materials in power systems is discussed including application requirements and scaling relationships for various topologies. Modeling relationships will link material property measurements such as core loss and permeability to device performance measures such as efficiency and power density.
