Skin and proximity effect on power transmission

Category: PQ Theory

This paper describes what skin effect and proximity effect are, how they influence electric power transmission, and what steps are taken to reduce their losses. Skin effect is a phenonmenon that occurs when an alternating current flows through a conductor, causing the current density to decrease exponentially between the surface toward the center of the conductor.
