What is Eddy Current? – Concept of Electromagnetic Damping

What is Eddy Current? The literal meaning of Eddy is a circular current. Thus the word itself means current having no definite circular loop. Eddy current is defined as the induced current on the surface of conductor in little loops or eddies due to changing magnetic flux. To better understand the concept of eddy current, … Read more What is Eddy Current? – Concept of Electromagnetic Damping

How Core Laminations Reduces Eddy Current Loss?

We are well aware of the fact that electrical machine core is made up of laminated sheets. This is done to reduce the eddy current loss. But how laminated core reduces the eddy current loss and what is the relation between the Eddy Current Loss and thickness of lamination? Let us consider an electrical machine … Read more How Core Laminations Reduces Eddy Current Loss?
