- Forward Inductor
In the case of a forward converter, a transformer is used to increase or decrease the load voltage thus providing galvanic isolation for the output. It is a DC to DC converter with numerous output windings providing both higher and lower output. It is more energy-efficient than a flyback converter. In the case of a forward converter energy is not stored during the conduction time of the switching element instead is directly passed to the output by transformer action during this phase. One advantage of forward converter over a flyback converter is when high current outputs are required. It was like a normal power transformer we are both primary and secondary windings conduct together with different magnetomotive force. In the case of a forward mode transformer, for energy storage, the core is not used. This is another difference between the flyback converter and forward mode transformer. The most important reason why you should purchase a forward mode transformer is that it has high magnetic inductors does minimize magnetic current. These are mostly used for output current up to 15 amps and voltage of 300 watts. Full bridge converter half-bridge converter and push-pull converters are forward converters. Shah electronics, chief manufacturer of ferrite coils, provides primary and demagnetizing winding as a tightly coupled converter for a smooth transfer of magnetizing current.
