Presents 3D method for the computation of the winding current distribution and power losses of the electromagnetic gear. For a prescribed current obtained from measurement, the transient eddy current field is defined in terms of a magnetic vector potential and an electric scalar potential. From numerically obtained potentials the power losses are determined. The winding power losses calculation of an electromagnetic gear shows that a given course of the current generates skin effect and significantly changes the windings resistances. Also presents the designing method for reducing power losses.
