We present a simple method to calculate the winding resistance of a litz-wire inductor in an induction cooking appliance, taking into account eddy-current losses, including conduction losses and proximity-effect losses. The method, which uses numerical calculation of the magnetic field, can be used to determine the optimum number of strands in the litz wire. The effects of the temperature on the winding total resistance are included in the calculation. We have built a prototype to verify the calculation method and its limitations. We consider the accuracy limits of the method.
