This paper details the practical, step-by-step experience encountered in the design and development of a 2 kHz, 3.5 kVA distribution transformer. Two conventional design methods were used respectively for the design: the Area Product approach, and the Core Geometry approach. The Area Product approach uses the product of the Core Window area and the Core sectional area as the principal design criteria, while the Core Geometry approach uses voltage regulation as the principal design criterion. When a common criterion was used for the design process, both approaches yielded an identical end result.
