Modeling and Finite Elements Analysis of Litz Wire

May 10, 2018

Since the beginning of 2018, Agile Magnetics has made a serious step in confirming its position as a leader in custom original equipment manufacturer (OEM) magnetics with the purchase of specialized FEM 3D software for analysis of electromagnetic and thermal fields.

Аs is well known, winding losses in transformers and inductors increase dramatically with frequency due to eddy-current and proximity effects. One of the most commonly used practical ways to reduce these losses is the use of Litz wire.

Litz Wire: An Ideal Solution for High-Frequency Applications

Aug 3, 2017

Invented toward the end of the 1800s, litz wire changed the way wires are configured. Its name is a shortening of the German word, "litzendraht," which means “woven wire.” A litz wire is composed of individually insulated strands of copper which are braided or otherwise woven together in specialized patterns, as opposed to simply twisting the copper strands together.

 Litz wire is typically used to improve the efficiency of high frequency transformers, inductors, and coils, and carries AC currents at radio frequencies.

Electromagnetic Coil Applications in the Medical, Military & Aerospace Industries

Jan 25, 2017

At their core, electromagnetic coils are quite simple: metal wire looped around a piece of shaped metal, typically a toroid or cylinder, which generates inductance when electrical current is introduced. Inductance is the property of such a coil to generate electromotive force when the current running through it experiences a change.

For such a simple concept, electromagnetic coils are a pervasive and incredibly important feature in all levels of electrical engineering. They’re employed most often in scenarios where electrical currents and electromagnetic fields directly interact — namely in electromagnets, sensor coils, inductors, and transformers.
