Abstract : A fluid-cooled electrical conductor having excellent heat transfer, low eddy loss, and good space factor is made by encapsulating small magnet wire strands, which constitute an electrically conductive member, in a meltable matrix that supports the wire; wrapping the matrix with an insulating tape having a silicone adhesive backing and thereby forming an insulating member that surrounds the matrix; perforating the insulating member so that an inlet and an outlet are formed through which an insulating coolant fluid can flow; and, heating, melting, and removing the meltable matrix.
