M19 Silicon Core, Straylosses, Eddy Current, Distribution Transformer

With increasing competition in the global market continuous research are done to optimize the behavior of materials to be used in transformer. Since silicon (Si) comprises a very good crystallographic arrangement then that of iron (Fe), silicon is fused with iron for considerable reduction of leakage flux in it. A novel M19 high grade silicon steel core has been introduced for 1 KVA 415/230V delta to star connected distribution transformer and stray losses are estimated using Ansys Maxwell. The obtained results are validated by experimental test.
