In order to study the influence on gradient coils of different track widths and frequencies, 30 split and shielded, whole-body x-gradient coils were designed. The track width was set from 1mm to 30mm with an increment of 1mm. The 30 designed split x-gradient coils were analyzed to study the interaction between the coils and the metallic surroundings, which took into account the skin and proximity effects. This study provides very valuable information which will guide coil engineers to choose the optimal wire track on regards the MRI coil applications.
