Claim of US Patent No. 10,770,218

1. A reactor comprising:an outer peripheral iron core;
at least three iron-core coils contacting or connected to an inner surface of the outer peripheral iron core,
wherein each of the iron-core coils includes iron cores and coils wound onto the iron cores, wherein a radial inner end portion of each of the iron cores converges towards a center of the outer peripheral iron core;
gaps that can magnetically connect one iron-core coil of the at least three iron-core coils and an iron-core coil adjacent to the one iron-core coil to each other are formed between the one iron-core coil of the at least three iron-core coils and the iron-core coil adjacent to the one iron-core coil, wherein the radial inner end portion of the iron core of the one iron-core coil is separated from the radial inner end portions of each adjacent iron core by the gaps;
wherein each of the iron cores extends only in a radial direction of the outer peripheral iron core; and
an external cooling unit is disposed circumferentially outside the outer peripheral iron core, for cooling the outer peripheral iron core.
