To decrease the effect of the variation of frequency on our transformer losses, we chose to use Litz wire for all of our windings.

Litz wire coil has lower inductivity for the same inner diameter (12mm) and outer (75mm) coil diameters of enameled copper wire coil, due to larger litz wire outer diameter for the same cross-section.

Engineers have used Litz wire for many years to minimize the resistance increase caused by skin effect.
The new topology uses smaller, lower-loss output inductors, along with a ferrite boost choke wound with Litz wire.
Conductors used in the transformer coil quite often are not made of regular magnet wire, but rather extremely thin copper strip or a specially woven wire called litz wire.
Continuous-mode PFC minimizes the cost of PFC magnetics by limiting AC flux, obviating the need for expensive Litz wire in the input choke and reducing ripple current delivered to the PFC bulk capacitor.
