AC losses due to nonsinusoidal current waveforms have been found by calculating the losses at harmonic frequencies when the Fourier coefficients are known. An optimized foil or layer thickness in a winding may be found by applying the Fourier analysis over a range of thickness values. This paper presents a new formula for the optimum foil or layer thickness, without the need for Fourier coefficients and calculations at harmonic frequencies. The new formula requires the RMS value of the current waveform and the RMS value of its derivative. It is simple, straightforward and applies to any periodic waveshape
