Annular Conductor

A number of wires stranded in three reversed concentric layers around a core. The core is usually made wholly or mostly of non-conducting material. This construction has the advantage of lower total a-c resistance for a given cross-sectional area of conducting material by eliminating the greater skin effect at the center.
