Abstract:

This paper was presented in poster format at the International Magnetics Conference in Stockholm, Sweden, 13-16 April 1993. It describes how the magnetic vector potential finite element method is used to predict the performance of a pot-core transformer for power transmission across a variable air gap. Performance predictions computed by the model include mutual and leakage inductance for various air gaps between 1 and 9 mm. Magnetic flux density external to the pot-core was also computed as a function of air gap. The predicted performance was then compared with measurements taken on a prototype core. Experimental and numerical results were shown to be in good agreement
