Experiments with a Differential Transformer
Aguilar, Horacio Munguía
Physics Education, v51 n6 Article 065001 Nov 2016
An experiment with an electric transformer based on single coils shows how electromagnetic induction changes when the magnetic coupling between coils is adjusted. This transformer has two secondary outputs which are taken differentially. This is the basis for a widely used position transducer known as LVDT.
