Litz wire losses

Litz wire is used to reduce winding losses at high frequency. Litz wire consists of 7 insulated transposed wires.

Problem type:
Axisymmetric problem of AC magnetics.

Geometry:

litz wire

All dimensions are in millimeters.

Given:
Core permeability μ = 2500,
Copper conductivity g=56e6 S/m,
Current I=1 A (RMS).
Conductor cross-sectional area S=0.126 mm2.
Frequency f=1 kHz.

Task:
Compare electric losses in the winding with solid wire and with litz wire.

Solution:
Each strand wire has its own label. The connection scheme is specified in external circuit file.

Results:

Frequency [kHz]

Solid wire losses [W]

Litz wire losses [W]
