Frequency dependent leakage inductance is often observed. High frequency eddy current effects cause a reduction in leakage inductance. The proximity effect between adjacent layers is responsible for the reduction of leakage inductance. This paper gives a detailed analysis of high frequency leakage inductance and proposes an accurate prediction methodology. High frequency leakage inductances in several interleaved winding configurations are also discussed. Interleaved winding configurations actually give a smaller degree of reduction of leakage induction at high frequency. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) simulation and measurement validate the models.
