you need to get datasheet of the ferrite........few softwares will know what ferrite you they wont be able to assess your core losses.
2....dont overheat core with core loss
3....use enough strands to avoid skin effect problems

thats a switching mode power supply circuit and I guess its a fly-back type (I see pc817 optocoupler).
the transformer is ferrite core switching transformer with two output winding
the transformer is specially designed for that circuit

Hi these are ferrite core transformers that are used in switching mode power supplies.
you cannot use them as 50Hz transformer, they are designed to be used in high frequency switching mode supplies with a switch controller IC
they are designed for specific circuit and not general ,

Just a guess without all the information....
The diagram looks like it has a ferrite core so it is probably intended to be used at a pulse frequency of >10KHz. What frequency are you driving it with?
Even with lower primary current you should get considerable voltage across it's output.

Your datasheet is a simple inductor rather than a transformer. A buck converter normally has an inductor with a single winding.
To find specs for making your own inductor, there are online calculators. You can purchase a ferrite core. Or, a DIY-er might make his own steel-particle slurry by cutting up steel wool and mixing 50-50 with silicone.

Carrier frequency of the shown power line remote control is 100 kHz rather than 315 MHz. But the coupler could be basically designed similarly. You preferably operate the transformer in resonance. Air core or open ferrite core with a very few windings. I presume you know basic LC resonator formulas (or can review it on the internet).

This is due to the flux skin effect on the steel core, causing a large drop in permeability.

the core clamping parts on pg 288 are made of brass, and are virtually "in" the ferrite, so they will surely suffer much eddy current heating?
Even if some heating occur there, should be due to the Foucault currents, which are strongly dependent on the width of any rod or screw placed inside the ferrite hole. Anyway
