While I was refreshing some flu mech material, I chanced upon a pipe flow condition that may be used model the skin effect (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skin_effect).
Would anyone be interested in a write up?
It looks like the most economical method of moving lots of power would be to use high voltage dc.
Thanks for the interest!
We will start off by covering D/C results first (which are easier to derive) and then move to deriving the results for A/C. I hope to have some animations that clearly show a parabolic current profile gradually start exhibiting the skin effect when we ramp up the frequency.
Thanks a ton for the interest!
