Hello.
I have a question regarding AC losses from transformer windings. I have a transformer with a winding ratio of 1:1 and realize the primary and secondary side each with a copper foil.
To eliminate the skin effect I want to divide the foil winding of the secondary side into 4 parallel foils. I lay the 4 foils on top of each other and connect them in parallel (secondary winding remains 1). How do I determine the number of layers for the secondary side? Do I now have 1/4 layer per parallel foil and thus 1 layer in total or does the secondary winding now consist of 4 layers?
I would like to determine the Rac/Rdc ratio, but have no idea how the number of layers (p) is determined in the parallel arrangement.
I use the formula from the attached graphic. Where Delta is defined as: Thickness/Skin depth
