your links returned this:

You don't have permission to access /bulk/spreadsheets/tranformerdesign1.ods on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

you will be surprised at how the insulating varnish can get in between the laminations so that scratches are not an issue as far as i am concerned....

retarded default file permissions in ubuntu 13 to blame. i also removed the space in the filename from the chokecalculator file.

and yes, i'm supprised at just how thin the varnish is.
btw, there isn't supposed to be any. the oxide coating from the factory is engineered to provide the optimum amount of insulation without reducing the stacking factor from the .98 it should be down to .90

that is one reason why we put in the space factor, there are always gaps no matter no matter how thight you squeeze the laminates together...

btw, i use wooden Popsicle sticks to wedge in between bobbin and core to reduce vibrations and humming....

Thank you Tony, that was excellent for me to reference. By doing a bit more searching, I was able to pin down as to why my calculations, although correct were 30% off. Which leads to the reason you and as well as others have used.........

where A is the area under the core in square inches
Thus simplifying the formulas to ensure a cool/stress free design in most if not all builds. I would further add to the fact that my calculations using my 'experimental base' transformer were aproximately 30% on the low side.

As I would presume my example transformer although runs relatively warm loaded to 25% and would most likely run much warmer under heavier loading. And most likely hot being loaded to 80% or more. Confirming that manufactures do what they can to get more bang for the $$. Thank you Tony and johansen.

Load being a static value steped through multiple B table with multiple efficiency outputs? Would you have the load as a % of max loading, or would you have it as a static integer?

as you gain more experience and confidence to build traffos, you will know what works and by how much and then making choices will be easy...

the formula given in RDH4 is not written in stone....to me it is a starting point....a more or less thing.....
