    Flyback Transformer Design (48V in, 12v out, how to layer turns, leakage inductance)

    Hi,

    I'm working on a high frequency flyback power supply. Specs approx:
    1MHz sw freq
    Vin 48V
    Vout 12V
    Power out 10-20W

    My questions are regarding the transformer.

    1. I have decided on a core, windings etc. I have a 2 layer primary and 2 layer secondary.
    What would generally be the best way to layer this?
    I was thinking 1 layer of primary first but would it be better to have.....
    1. 1 layer pri, then 1 layer sec, then 1 layer pri, then the final sec. or
    2. 2 secondary layers directly together sandwiched between the two single primary layers.

    Is there a rule of thumb for leakage inductance of a well designed (& manufactured) flyback transformer - perhaps as a percentage of the main inductance?

    1. 1 layer pri, then 1 layer sec, then 1 layer pri, then the final sec. or
    Leakage inductance will be reduce ¼ th of regular primary secondary winding but inter winding capacitance will be double. Wave form rigging will be very less

    2. 2 secondary layers directly together sandwiched between the two single primary layers.
    Leakage inductance will be reduce 1/2 rd of regular primary secondary winding and less inter winding capacitance . Wave form rigging also less
    Better to go ahead with second option (2.2)

    (Inter winding capacitance are important if high voltage application)

    Do you have any additional requirements, like creepage distance? I don't think so, since your primary is relatively low voltage. But please check.
