Bifilar Wound Toroids Session 2
Ferrite Transformers for Matching Amplifiers Ferrite Cores for Transmission Lines/Baluns, EMI Powdered Iron High Q inductors: Increased Inductance FT :1 Transformer Ferrite

Operating Principles Right Hand Rule
For a Solenoid Reversing Current Direction Reverses the Flux B [tesla] B I [Amps] L1 [H] I [Amps]

Operating Principles Right Hand Rule
For a Solenoid A simple Experiment with a compass Demonstrated in Lab

Ideal Transformers N1=N2 Identical Windings Lenz and Faraday
B1 Lossless 1 mA B1+B2 =0 1 mA B2

Series Connection of Inductors Bifilar Winding: Additive L1=L2 Leq= L1+L2+2M Leq = 4L1 if M = L1
Wind one Inductor: 10 Turns Bifilar Lead Length = 1.5 inches Don’t solder windings yet Measure Single Turn Inductor LC mtr Solder Connections Measure Bifilar Inductor LC mtr Measure input impedance with AIM Compare Single turn and Bifilar Inductance Lbifilar #26 Gauge Yellow Core

Layout wires per top left drawing. Check continuity Connect per top right: Solder “a dot” to b

Series Connection of Inductors Bifilar Winding: Subtractive L1=L2 Leq= L1+L2 - 2M Leq = 0 if M = L1
