Magnetic Field Inside Windings; a Key Parameter in the Proximity Effect Equation

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


A detailed knowledge of the magnetic field intensity and distribution is required to solve the proximity effect losses. In the face of many numerical methods and algorithms in use today t the method of images was used. Two methods of modelling the windings are investigated; in the first case the winding is approximated as a uniform rectangular current distributiont neglecting the cylindrical curvature. In the second instance each turn in the winding is modelled by a circular current filament.
