Abstract

In this study, an iron core shunt reactor with different numbers of air gaps was investigated and the most suitable design was tried to be obtained. First of all, detailed information was given about the shunt reactor and its types. The effect of the number of air gaps on the magnetic flux distribution was investigated in detail. With the help of the finite element method, it was aimed to obtain the most appropriate design by obtaining the desired value for the magnetic flux density by selecting the appropriate number of airgaps in the shunt reactor. The finite element results show that with the increase in the numbers of the airgaps, magnetic flux density decreases. However, considering the technical and economic aspects are also important.
