Skin and Proximity Effect Losses in Transformer and Inductor Windings

  • J. A. Ferreira
Part of the The Kluwer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science book series (PEPS)


Equations are derived to calculate conductive and eddy current losses in transformer and inductor windings, A prominent feature of this mathematical approach is that it permits seperation of the ohmic losses into skin effect, proximity effect and frequency components.
