Eddy-current effects have an impact on the resistance of litz wire. They reduce the utilization of the wire
cross section. In a certain parameter range, the dominant influencing factor is the current distribution in
the wire connectors. The connector itself does not significantly contribute to the wire resistance but it
results in an inhomogeneous current distribution among the strands. We quantify the resistance increase
by introducing a connector skin-effect factor and give a mathematical derivation. Taking the twisting
of the strands into account requires a probabilistic model of the radial strand position. Resistance measurement
results validate the calculation approach. We discuss the assumptions and derive the parameter
range where the model is valid.
