Re: Homemade litz with THHN wire?

Original poster: Ed Phillips <evp@xxxxxxxxxxx>

"But the individual strands of Litz wire must be sized according to the
operating frequency.  See a table at
http://www.coonerwire.com/Products/Litz/DesignD_2.html.  The smallest
strand size commonly used is 30AWG, and this is suitable only for
frequencies 1-10Khz, or below.  Higher frequencies require comparably
smaller strands; 36AWG is recommended for 50-100KHz.

	I think you mean the largest size is  #30.  #3-41 used to be used for
radio IF transformers.  I have a roll of what I recall to be something
like #38-44.  Wire is really too small to strip practically, even with
chemical stripper.

	I still can't imagine any reason to use litz wire for a TC.
