Interleaved windings provide useful alternative

The interleaved winding alternative lets the designer use twice the allowable circuits, thus doubling the turns per coil. To interleave a winding, each group is divided into subgroups, which are paralleled. Dividing each group into paralleled subgroups sounds simple, but an incorrectly designed interleaved winding will have circulating currents.
