Re: AC Windings in parallel are smaller!

I'm sorry Dennis but you've set the group on a wild goose chase!

As has already been pointed out, you've mis-read the wire table and used diamter ratios not x-section: so 22 AWG is one quarter the section of 16 AWG

Gauge No AWG (inches) (mm) mm2
16 0.0508 1.29032 1.30763

17 0.0453 1.15062 1.039809

18 0.0403 1.02362 0.822939

19 0.0359 0.91186 0.65305




22 0.0253 0.64262 0.324338

If you re-run your calculations using 19 AWG you'll find that transformer manufacturers have not missed a trick!
