From what I can understand:
- The Skin Effect is when AC current 'collects' on the skin of conductors due to the counter-emf from its magnetic field.
- The Proximity Effect is when the magnetic field of a wire induces eddy currents in adjacent wires, which 'push' the current away from conductors carrying current in the same direction.
Now in the case of a transformer, the wires are close enough for the Proximity Effect to occur, so could the two effects average each other out (to create a uniform/close-to-uniform current density)?
Thanks in advance.
