\$\mu_i\$ should not change much from DC to 10kHz, that's why the graphs will typically only show frequencies above 10kHz, for MnZn ferrites, for example.

Materials such as permalloy have noticeably lower permeability at 100Hz than at DC.

Lets start with a few basics here

$$V = N \dfrac{d}{dt} \Phi = N \cdot A_e \dfrac{d}{dt}B$$

Here \$ B \$ is flux density and for a typical ferrite running at 20kHz I would personally be designing for a flux density swing of around \$200 \text{ mT}\$

Assuming the input voltage is is 27 volts peak to peak maximum, 50% duty cycle @ 20kHz \$ dt = 25 \mu s\$

We now know everything except \$A_e\$ and \$N\$ so we can rearrange the above equation to find \$ N \cdot A_e\$

$$N \cdot A_e = \dfrac{V \cdot dt}{dB} = \dfrac{27 \cdot 25 \times 10^{-6}}{0.2} = 3.38 \times 10^{-3}$$

Note that this product is using Area in SI units (\$m^2\$) and the data sheet probably gives \$A_e\$ in \$\text{mm}^2\$ so we want \$3380000\text{mm}^2\$

In theory any combination of \$N \cdot A_e\$ will work but we note the more turns we have the more area is needed for the windings and the size of the wire we need is set by the current it needs to carry. A typical figure for wire size is to assume a maximum current density of \$ J= 4.5 \cdot \dfrac{\text{amp}}{\text{mm}^2}\$

Given our current of 7.5 amps this requires a wire diameter of \$ \sqrt{\dfrac{4 \cdot I}{J \cdot \pi}}\approx 1.5\text{mm}\$

So we can have a core with a lot of turns and small \$A_e\$ or few turns and big \$A_e\$ the most economic design will be the smallest core into which the turns will fit and if we assume that the wire packs poorly the area required for a single turn is \$A_t = (1.5 \text{mm})^2 = 2.25 \text{mm}^2\$

We can thus work out the area required for the winding \$ A_w = N \cdot A_t \Rightarrow N = \dfrac{A_w}{A_t}\$

Substituting this into the equation above

$$N \cdot A_e = \dfrac{A_w \cdot A_e}{A_t}=\dfrac{V \cdot dt}{dB} \Rightarrow A_w \cdot A_e = \dfrac{A_t\cdot V \cdot dt}{dB} = 7605000 \text{mm}^4$$

Where \$A_e\$ is the core effective area and \$A_w\$ is the available winding area taking into account the bobbin.

Now the coil you have designed will have much more inductance than you want so you will need to introduce an air gap. I usually don't try to calculate this but ask my winding house to gap the core, in the center leg to give me the inductance I want.

The boost converter can be designed in a similar way but I'd ask further advice as at such high frequencies skin and proximity effects are significant.

## Best Answer

The ferrite tranformer cant operate at such a high voltage at such a low frequency.

To get the reduced frequency to need to rectify the transformer output and then convert that DC into AC.
