Iron loss measurements of Mn-Zn ferrite cores up to the megahertz range are reported. Taking the dc magnetic hysteresis, the eddy, and displacement currents into account, magnetic and electric field distributions in the cores are computed with the cylindrical coordinates and Bessel functions. The computed iron loss due to the magnetic and electric fields is compared with the experimental value at different exciting frequencies. It is noted that the computed iron loss becomes considerably smaller than the experimental at high frequencies. In order to explain the difference between the computed and experimental iron losses, a new magnetic field component yielding a dynamic magnetic loss is assumed and added to the magnetic field intensity of the dc magnetic hysteresis. This assumption is verified by evaluating the iron losses in different size cores composed of the same ferrite material. Displacement current distribution in a ferrite core depends on the cross-sectional area of the magnetic flux path, which brings about the dependence of the frequency characteristics of the iron loss upon core size
