Effect of 90 degree phase shifted current on transformer

If we have a closed magnetic circuit with two primary coils and one secondary coil wound on it. The primary coils are wound such that North/South poles are adjacent. Both primary coils are using rectified AC and the current in one coil is phase shifted by 90 degrees to the other coil.

This would result in an interplay of the magnetic fields where one is increasing to its peak value while at the same time the other is decreasing to zero. What would be the effect of the magnetic fields on a secondary coil?
