Paper Title:
Electromagnetic Analysis and Comparison of Conventional-Wound Cores and Octagonal-Wound Cores of Distribution Transformers
  Abstract

This paper presents comparative results of an electromagnetic study performed in two different wound core transformer configurations in order to know the best configuration that reduce excitation current and core losses. The results show that octagonal wound-core (OWC) reduces the excitation current and eddy-current losses with respect conventional-wound core (CWC). The results were obtained applying 2D and 3D FEM simulations, taking into account the non-linear properties of the core. In the last part of this paper, several grades of grain oriented electrical steels and the combination of them are analyzed to find the best mixing percentage to reduce eddy-current losses and excitation current.
