Questions tagged [litz-wire]

Anything related to litz wire, i.e. a specially fabricated wire that suffer less than normal wire from skin effect and proximity effect, which increase the effective resistance of a wire when the frequency of the current increases. Therefore litz wire is used often in the construction of inductors and transformers for high frequency applications.

AC resistance of an inductor?

I measured the AC resistance of my customized inductor with network analyzer of core E70. I got 23mohms AC resistance and 2.3mohm DCR for 14uH inductor with 8 number of turns using litz wire(1400) of ...

Why isn't there a non-conducting core wire for high-frequency coil applications

Background The commonly known skin effect formulas are derived and only apply to solid conductors. The commonly used "skin depth" only applies in these cases. It is for this reason that in some ...

Why is the Litz Wire twisted?

I understand that dividing a wire into multiple insulated pieces reduce the Eddy Currents, and that reduces the magnetic field inside the wire, which leads to increased skin depth. But why do they ...

Would using litz wire for an inductor change the inductance compared to regular wire?

Litz wire is multistranded wire where each strand is insulated from the others along the wire's length, but they are connected together on each end. This is useful primarily to reduce the skin effect,...
