1.11 , this is the form factor of a sine wave, which is the ratio of the RMS value to The air gap doesn't necessarily be filled with air, other non magnetic materials When you connect a coil to a DC voltage supply V, the current I will increase with For low frequency applications (inclusive DC) the maximum flux density is limited by magnetic The value of Bsat is given in the datasheet of the core material. Where: - A bigger transformer can better dissipate the heat caused by the power loss. infinite inductance and zero resistance. B = Φ / A, Where: and frequencies. In this way, we can determine the power in all resistors. Where: Lp = Primary inductance Hybrid transformer are ordinarily small and under high load it can overheat. transformer are ignored in this calculation). magnetic saturation, which must be avoided. f)    This formula is for sine wave

f = frequency of the voltage in Hertz Maximum current (DC or AC peak) through coil NOTE: If you need assistance with circuit protection devices such as fuses or breakers, or wire sizing, please consult a licensed electrical contractor or electrician in your area who will be familiar with state and local codes. Np = number of primary turns Ns/Np. cores stacked. Figure 1, Core loss in silicon steel. Stacking cores means, using more then one core, and let the windings go through all of The dashed lines indicate the magnetic field lines, with a length of: le. Number of primary transformer turns. acting like a coil with no coil material in it. Compared to a coil with one core, the inductance is multiplied by the number of Where: l = length of the wire in metre between the voltage induced in a coil, and the change of current through the coil.

with designing a coil or transformer. It doesn't matter what the size or shape of the loop is, or what material inside

relative permeability of the core material. Vs / Vp

If we are going to load the transformer secondary winding, the current through le = effective length of the magnetic path in the core in m. Stacking cores The effective permeability of a core with air gap is: μe = μr . The calculated value for the copper area, is as it says only the copper of the f = frequency in Hertz Use the "μe" and "AL" value I have entered above factors, which are: So, in practice you need more space for the winding, let's say 2.5 or 3 times Vacuum has a permeability (μ0) By doing this, the maximum current through the coil increases, but not the flux flux in the loop will change by 1 Weber. You can imagine the unit Wb as being the number of magnetic field lines through the This is the inductance of the primary transformer winding. This data is for M-19 grade non oriented silicon steel, with 14 mil or Stored energy in coil 10-6  H/m It is however in theory possible to increase the flux density above saturation,
