French term or phrase: deux éléments en C accolés
Hi all,

This is from a patent in the field of power electronics. The patent is for 'des bobinages couplés utilisés par exemple dans une inductance d'interphase ou un transformateur'

It says:

De manière préférée, le noyau magnétique est fermé et est composé, de préférence, de deux éléments en C accolés ou de deux éléments en E accolés. Ainsi, on peut répartir les enroulements sur deux ou trois branches du noyau magnétique.

TIA :)

Reference information:
I'm no great fan of Wikipedia, but this gives a fair idea of what's going on here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnetic_core

Two 'C' cores, joined 'limb to limb' form an 'O'. Two 'E' cores joined 'limb-to-limb' (or an 'E' with an 'I' across the its 3 limbs) form a (lazy) '8'.
