We place first half of LV on one limb and rest half of LV on other limb to reduce leakage flux.
So arrangement is LV insulation then half LV turns then HV insulation and then half HV turns.

Yoke area A

is generally taken 10% to 15% higher then core section area (A
i
), it is to reduce the iron loss in
the yoke section. But if we increase the core section area (A
i
) more copper will be needed in the windings
and so more cost through we are reducing the iron loss in the core. Further length of the winding will
increase resulting higher resistance so more cu loss.
