Transformer Cores


“What keeps the winding in a transformer together?”


Electrical winding makes up the very core of a transformer. Or so it is thought. The actual Transformer Cores are the support structure for the metal windings. Not only this, but it provides reluctance to magnetic flux and prevents the spread of eddy current and hysteresis loss. The core’s diameter size is proportional to copper loss and inversely proportional to iron loss.
