P388 - Standard for Transformers and Inductors in Electronic Power Conversion Equipment

This standard pertains to transformers and inductors of both the saturating and nonsaturating type that are used in electronic power conversion equipment. Power conversion equipment includes items known as inverters, converters, power conditioners, switching power supplies, switched mode power supplies, and the like. These items are mostly devices used to change dc power from one voltage to another, to change dc power to ac, and to change ac power of one frequency to another frequency. This equipment is best described as utilizing transistors, silicon controlled rectifiers (SCRs), or other similar devices that switch power on and off at a high rate in order to achieve the power conversion or regulation desired. Therefore, this standard covers the various transformers and inductors that are used in any of the above mentioned equipment or devices, except for transformers operated directly from the mains.
