Why are transformer cores stacked

Why are transformer cores stacked

Commonly used transformer cores are generally made of silicon steel sheets. Silicon steel is a kind of steel with silicon (silicon is also called silicon), and its silicon content is 0.8 ~ 4.8%. The reason why silicon steel is used as the iron core of transformer is that silicon steel itself is a magnetic material with strong magnetic conductivity. In the energized coil, it can produce large magnetic induction intensity, which can reduce the volume of transformer.

We know that the actual transformer always works in AC state, and the power loss is not only on the resistance of the coil, but also in the iron core magnetized by alternating current. Usually, the power loss in the iron core is called "iron loss". The iron loss is caused by two reasons, one is "hysteresis loss" and the other is "eddy current loss".

Hysteresis loss is the iron loss caused by the hysteresis phenomenon in the magnetization process of the iron core. The size of this loss is directly proportional to the area surrounded by the hysteresis loop of the material. The hysteresis loop of silicon steel is narrow, and the hysteresis loss of transformer core made of silicon steel is small, which can greatly reduce its heating degree.

Since silicon steel has the above advantages, why not use the whole silicon steel as the iron core and process it into a sheet?

This is because the sheet iron core can reduce another iron loss - "eddy current loss". When the transformer works, there is alternating current in the coil, and the magnetic flux generated by it is of course alternating. This changing magnetic flux produces an induced current in the iron core. The induced current generated in the iron core flows in a ring in a plane perpendicular to the magnetic flux direction, so it is called eddy current. Eddy current losses also heat the core. In order to reduce the eddy current loss, the iron core of the transformer is stacked with silicon steel sheets insulated from each other, so that the eddy current passes through a small section in the narrow and long circuit, so as to increase the resistance on the eddy current path; At the same time, the silicon in silicon steel increases the resistivity of the material and reduces the eddy current.

As the iron core of the transformer, generally 0.35mm thick cold-rolled silicon steel sheet is selected. It is cut into long pieces according to the size of the required iron core, and then overlapped into "day" shape or "mouth" shape. In principle, in order to reduce eddy current, the thinner the silicon steel sheet, the narrower the spliced strip, and the better the effect. This not only reduces the eddy current loss and temperature rise, but also saves the material of silicon steel sheet. But in fact, when making silicon steel sheet iron core. Not only from the above favorable factors, because making the iron core in that way will greatly increase the working hours and reduce the effective section of the iron core. Therefore, when making transformer iron core with silicon steel sheet, we should start from the specific situation, weigh the advantages and disadvantages and choose the best size.

The transformer is made according to the principle of electromagnetic induction Two windings, a primary winding and a secondary winding, are wound around the closed iron core column When AC power supply voltage is applied to the primary winding There is alternating current in the original Rao group, and the magnetic potential is established. Under the action of the magnetic potential, the alternating main flux is generated in the iron core. The main flux passes through the iron core at the same time, {AC link] the primary and secondary windings are closed, and the induced electromotive force is generated in the primary and secondary windings respectively due to the action of electromagnetic induction.

As for why it can boost and depressurize It needs to be explained by Lenz's law The magnetic flux generated by the induced current always hinders the change of the original magnetic flux. When the original magnetic flux increases, the magnetic flux generated by the induced current is opposite to the original magnetic flux.

In other words, the induced flux generated by the secondary winding is opposite to the main flux generated by the original winding, so the secondary winding has a low-level alternating voltage.

So The iron core is the magnetic circuit part of the transformer The winding is the circuit part of the transformer.
