This figure shows that these inductances are the sum of a constant value relative to the leakage inductance and a value varying linearly relative to the inductance of motor saliency.
The aforementioned challenge is actually achieving such as a small magnetizing inductance with low leakage inductance.
The disadvantage of low power switched mode flyback converter is leakage inductance phenomenon of flyback transformer [1]-[3].
The stray components such as the output capacitance of the power MOSFETs and the leakage inductance of the transformer are used advantageously to provide zero voltage turn-on of the switches (Gwan-Bon, Tae-Sung, Gun-Woo, & Myung-Joong, 2004).
While practically, some flux navigate paths that take it outside the windings which results in leakage inductance in series with the mutually coupled transformer windings.
In addition to space-saving designs, volumetric efficiency, and thermal performance, the transformers provide low leakage inductance and repeatable capacitance.
Impedance of an electric motor depends on a number of parameters, in particular on induction magnetization and leakage inductance of stator winding, resistance of stator winding, leakage inductance and resistance of rotor winding, and mechanical loading of electric motor.

ZVS is achieved by timing the switching to coincide with resonance of the transformer leakage inductance and the input MOSFET parasitic capacitances.
Direct comparison of type B78416A1850A003 (EP5XL) with its predecessor B78417A1764A003 (EP7)demonstrates that, despite its smaller core volume, the new transformer has the same longitudinal balance and total harmonic distortion values while satisfying the leakage inductance requirements.
