Applying this idea to the contour of the molecular magnetization current [i.sub.m], we arrive at a microscopic homogeneous double layer of fictitious magnetic charges, which is equivalent to a magnetic dipole.
Magnetization current largely affects proper operation of transformer protection system.
This table shows that the magnetization current transformer designed under the proposed methodology is much smaller than the conventional methodology, which implies that the impedance of the core model circuit is higher, leading to lower core losses, the hysteresis loop is smaller and not reach the saturation zone, just as the short-circuit impedance is higher since the greatest increase resistance windings and dispersion reactance.
