The effect of some winding defects, Part 2
ABSTRACT: In a previous Note basic concepts relating to a gap in the winding of an otherwise perfect coil were discussed for the special case where the plane of the coil is perpendicular to the conductor. This Note looks at some more practical aspects. Methods are described for minimising the effect of the gap in the winding of a flexible coil where the ends are joined. It is also shown how other winding defects such as bumps or hollows in the coil former can be evaluated. The concepts involved when a coil is not oriented perpendicular to the conductor are also discussed.
