What do you mean by eddy current loss?..

Answer / niyas

Eddy currents are currents induced in conductors to oppose
the change in flux that generated them. It is caused when a
conductor is exposed to a changing magnetic field due to
relative motion of the field source and conductor, or due
to variations of the field with time. This can cause a
circulating flow of electrons, or a current, within the
body of the conductor. These circulating eddies of current
create induced magnetic fields that oppose the change of
the original magnetic field due to Lenz's law, causing
repulsive or drag forces between the conductor and the
magnet. The stronger the applied magnetic field, or the
greater the electrical conductivity of the conductor, or
the faster the field that the conductor is exposed to
changes, then the greater the currents that are developed
and the greater the opposing field.

Before i went to bed my master bathroom lights were working fine. At 2 am, when I went to use the lights, none of them were working. The outlets throughout the bathroom work, but the lights and fan above the toilet don't. I have two panels of switches. The one panel has four switches. One of the switches turns on the hall light, and that works. The other three are to other lights, and they don't. The other panel has three switches. One of those is to the fan, and the other is to a light above the toilet. The other is a to light that is also on that other panel. I tried the breakers, and the one that turns off the outlets, marked for the bathrooom, turns on and off the outlets. None seemed to be tripped. I checked the lightbulbs, and they are fine. Please help
