  1. In ferrite core T/ f in use for to reduce iron losses
    but answer given reduce resistance how ?
    Plz. Clear

  2. In ferrite core T/ f in use for to reduce iron losses
    but answer given reduce resistance how ?
    Plz. Clear

    1. ferrite core t/f already have high resistence and no need of laminations like silicon steel core t/f .due to high ferrite resistence decrease the eddy current losses.

    2. Ferrite core have high resistence

    3. Ferrite core has high resistivity .so it has high resistance which results in the reduction of eddy current. So eddy current losses can be reduced which is predominant at high frequencies. That is why ferrite cores are used in high frequency transformer.

  3. thank u .
    can u provide answers with justifications

  4. very usefull information thanks
