  title={Extra losses caused in high current conductors by skin and proximity effects},
  author={Andr{\'e} Ducluzaux},
Collection Technique "Cahiers Techniques" is a collection of documents intended for engineers and technicians, people in the industry who are looking for more in-depth information in order to complement that given in product catalogues. Furthermore, these "Cahiers Techniques" are often considered as helpful "tools" for training courses. They provide knowledge on new technical and technological developments in the electrotechnical field and electronics. They also provide better understanding of… 
Analysis and application of transmission line conductors
Skin effect is usually a concern reserved for radio frequency design and for high current conductors used in utility power distribution. Proximity effect between adjacent conductors has traditionally
Practical Aspects of the Skin Effect in Low Frequencies in Rectangular Conductors
An analysis of the behavior of the current density distribution over the cross-section of differently combined rectangular conductors subject to power frequency current and the influence of a correlated effect that is the proximity effect shows itself as being predominant, which allow bridging the knowledge gap in this theme.
In this paper, a new numerical method of calculating rectangular busbar impedance is proposed. This method is based on integral equation method and partial inductance theory. In particular,
Development of high-capacity substation connectors compatible with htls technology
The advent of HTLS (High Temperature, Low Sag) conductors imposes more severe operating conditions on devices such as substation connectors intended for transmission and distribution systems, which
System dependant IDMT settings: direct buried underground cable
This research project develops and implements a simulation model using finite element analysis that analyses specific underground cable systems based on operating and environmental conditions and outlines the effect that environmental conditions have on the required protection settings of underground cable system.
Comparative Analysis of Electrical Parameters for Three Phase Busbar Trunking System
Busbar Trunking system is one of the most widely used in electrical power distribution in place of cable. The major reasons behind the popularity of the BBT is flexibility in design, on-site
Thermal Analysis of Dry-Type Air-Core Coils for the Optimization of Passive Filtering Systems

A new method, based on the Fourier series, for evaluating proximity-effect losses in a multi-turn, multi-layer tubular coil is presented, which can be incorporated into the design and optimization procedures.
Optimization of short-circuit tests based on finite element analysis
This paper analyzes a simple method to minimize the power requirements when conducting short-circuit tests, based on the reduction of reactive power consumption during the test, which is based on placing a wired conductor forming a closed inner loop concentric with the testing loop.
