Mike Gibson; Two turn inductor

 

Jump to Mike Gibsonís two-turn inductor simulation.

http://www.gibsonridgesoftware.com/physics/two_turn_inductor/tti_simulation.htm

 It simulates both the two-turn inductor and single-turn transformer and lets you view all of the various voltages. It also has three different input signals: step, pulse, and sine wave. The pulse is 1/2 the number of iterations long. The sine wave is one cycle (the simulation runs for several cycles to let transients die down, only the last cycle is displayed).

I've finally got the program ready for testing. Here is a link to a page with more information:

The program doesn't do moving pictures. It shows a stripchart of the result of the simulation. I don't think a moving picture would be useful.

 

I've tried the program on both win98 and win2k with no problem. I select Settings->Parameters then change Zc to, say, 200 and can see the graph change. Follow these steps and tell me where your system behaves differently:

 

1) Run tti.exe

2) Graph shows Vc for the step response. The time constant is 77.

3) Select Settings->Parameters to bring up the "Simulation Settings" dialog box.

4) Change Zc from 50 to 200, press Ok

5) The graph redraws. The new time constant is 21.
