I'm reading the document "Eddy Current Losses in Transformer Windings and Circuit Wiring" by Lloyd H. Dixon, Jr about proximity effect in transformer and more generally. I have a misunderstanding point. Here it is:
Fig. 5 - Circuit Wiring - Flat Parallel Strip
"Eddy Current Losses in Transformer Windings and Circuit Wiring" by Lloyd H. Dixon, Jr
As the current direction in the two strips is opposed, the magnetic field is very high between the two strips as each magnetic field of each strip adds each other. Nevertheless, according to Faraday's Law and Lenz's Law, I do not understand why the eddy current are not maximum at the place where the magnetic fields is maximum. Hence if the eddy current is maximum at this place, the eddy current being opposed to the current flowing into the conductor, the current should be lower at the place where the magnetic field is maximum?
The eddy current is flowing such that it enhances the magnetic field produced by the main current. It is in contradiction with the Lenz's Law and physically this is not possible because I do not understand where the equilibrium is reached. Please bring me to the light !
Lenz's Law = "the direction of the current induced in a conductor by a changing magnetic field is such that the magnetic field created by the induced current opposes the initial changing magnetic field."
Thank you very much.
