Hello @cblair ,
The cores of the electrical machines are laminated and are also insulated to reduce the induced circulating current also called eddy currents.
Hi @rtk ,
Eddy currents! How do they effect Electrical machines?
Hi @cblair ,
If the core is not laminated, eddy currents will cause a considerable loss in the cores of electrical machines which results in the excessive heating of the machine.
