  • IRFP064 gets burnt

    Please view the attachment of SMPS circuit which was modified by me to fulfill my requirements. I made three PCB's of the above SMPS (Output about 220V/1.5A DC). The problem is that one PCB is working fine and delivering my desired voltage & current (i.e. 220V/1.5A DC). But in the remaining two PCB's, power MOSFET (IRFP064) gets burnt within 2-3 minutes.
    My question is that when the three PCB's are identical, so why one board is working satisfactorily & other two boards are not functioning properly? I thoroughly checked everything in all PCB's but remained unsuccessful. Hence please help in this respect.

    Someone informed me that since the circuit is running in voltage mode... a push-pull running that way can be subject to "flux walking".
    Therefore, my question is that how I prevent the core from reaching saturate in this push pull mode?

    Note: The IC is TL494 (with frequency=about 36KHz)
    Best regards
