This paper describes a two c-core type orthogonal-core made of Fe-6.5 wt. % Si sheet and its application to power converters. The orthogonal-core can be used in the high-frequency region because a Fe-6.5 wt. % Si sheet has superior soft magnetic properties including high permeability and low core loss. Using the orthogonal-core, we constructed a parametric oscillation type dc-ac converter. The dc-ac converter had voltage regulation, overload protection, noise rejection, and almost sinusoidal output. Good efficiency was obtained in the frequency range from 400 Hz to 1 kHz. Furthermore, we propose a dc-dc converter for coupling two independent dc power sources. The dc-dc coupling converter has bilateral power transfer and ease of controlling the transferred power. The basic operation of the dc-dc coupling converter is described.
