I was thinking on creating a dual layer PCB where on one side I would put the MYRRA (45043) AC-AC PCB mount transformer, and on other side the remaining components. In other words I would have the AC tracks along with DC tracks, low DC amperage and up to 16A on some AC tracks. And at this point I started thinking:
- Is there any way to isolate the heat generated by the AC-AC transformer to the other side of the board?
- What special consideration should I take when mixing AC and DC tracks on the same PCB?
- There's some calculators on the net to calculate track width and so on, but I could not figure out how much heat it will be generated from transformer.
- Taking into consideration that same tracks could be at certain point up to 16A AC, should I consider an inner layer (for isolation purposes), instead of an external one? Is it recommendable, good practice, or is that plain old nonsense?
Any help would be gratefully appreciated. Some literature I should read and other things I should consider... please let me know...
