Recent efforts to develop a new power transformer incorporating a novel wire core configuration have required that core magnetic flux and power loss be estimated during the development process. In this work, an innovative core concept was considered using commercial finite element simulation software, with core loss results shown to be comparable to measurements on a standard 10 kVA design. The results of this analysis demonstrate the possibility of performing the standard no load transformer test in a virtual environment early in the design process, which should aid in predicting the performance of this and other new configurations under various load conditions.
