    For flyback converter applications, an accurate model of the transformer is necessary for simulation studies, as well as a basis for model-based controller design. In general, trans- former modeling has either focused on the winding model, using frequency-domain methods, or on the nonlinear core model, using time-domain methods. Nonlinear modeling is confined to the time domain and certain difficulties have precluded the use of time- domain methods for winding model estimation, resulting in the lack of integrated modeling approaches. This paper focuses on identifying a complete nonlinear dynamic model of a 3-winding transformer using time-domain system identification approaches. Our study demonstrates a possible way to handle the difficulties of working in the time domain and provides a model at least as accurate as that obtained with the frequency response data. In ad- dition to the parameters of the Jiles–Atherton model, which is used to describe the nonlinear core behavior, the air-gap length is also computed from the experimental data to enhance the core model accuracy. The obtained transformer winding model, core model, and full model are experimentally verified.
