Orthogonal-cores have various potential applications, for instance in parametric transformers and dc-ac converters. The operating characteristics of the devices can be calculated on the basis of the measured relationship of flux to MMF of the orthogonal-core. To achieve optimal design of the applied device, the relationship of flux to MMF must be determined; however, this involves solving a three dimensional nonlinear problem. In this paper, we calculate the flux-MMF relationship based on a magnetic circuit model for the orthogonal-core. The computed results agree well with experiment. The method of this study is shown to be valid for calculation of characteristics and useful for optimal design of application devices.
