How to calculate the magnetic resistance for the transformer simulation in the Plecs Magnetic Domain?

0 votes

I am trying to simulate a transformer model in the Plecs magnetic domain. I know that the magnetic resistance is for modeling core losses. Can I get the parameter of the magnetic resistance just from the geometry? Because I don't know the core losses and I want to use the magnetic reisistance to simulate(calculate) it.

Here is a great resource from our colleague at Plexim's PhD research: Inside you will find the calculation of the resistance value for a transformer laminate.

Best regards,
