WOUND CORE

Power Core has started supplies of distributed gap cores for small power and distribution transformers. We produce an almost unlimited amount of core designs.

Overview

Wound cores are popular in the distribution transformer industry, especially in single phase units where transformers no-load losses close to the intrinsic loss of the steel are desired.

They offer better performance with the added benefit of a very simple clamping structure and assembly process, utilizing 75% fewer components than an equivalent stacked core. Therefore, the time taken to assemble a core is dramatically reduced. These cores are generally best suited to transformer designs with rectangular windings.

These cores are produced as per customer design requirements.
