What are core lamination

  • Laminations mitigate the eddy currents.
  • The iron core is formed by laminations dipped in insulating varnish.
  • Sliced core offers very less width to circulated eddy currents.
  • Silicon steel sheets to replace with solid core break up the eddy current path without incrementing reluctance of magnetic path.
  • In additions to increased efficiency, above approaches benefits in,
  1. Minimized unit dimensions.
  2. Minimized transformer heating which reduces the need for extra cooling and insulation.
  3. Minimized noise.
  4. Increased insulation life.
  5. Withstand harmonic loads.
