Title: Gapless core reactor

Abstract

A gapless core reactor includes a saturable magnetic core having reactor legs without air gaps and multiple windings. The windings are each wound around a common leg, spaced apart from each other and connected in counter series. The windings are configured such that a magnetic flux generated from an alternating current flowing through the windings generates a plurality of substantially equal and counter magnetic fluxes flowing through two or more separate magnetic circuits.
