    Pe=Ke×Bm²×f²×t²×v in Watts

    Eddy Current loss in transformer is denoted as,
    Pe = Ke * f^2 * Bmax^2 * t^2 * v^2
    Hence apparently, the eddy current loss Pe ∝ f^2, but for any given voltage, if f decreases, Bm increases correspondingly and if f increases Bm decreases correspondingly. Hence the eddy current loss Pe at any given voltage, is independent of frequency.

    Eddy current loss Propotional to square or Freuency
    So increase it
    Correct answer is option B

    Eddy current loss is proportional to the square of frequency it should be increase with the increase of frequency..

    Ad current propotional to frequency
    So why unchanging ad current looses

    But we know that eddy current losses per cycle is proportional to frequency.... Then how frequency remains unchanged
