- A Transformer[+] is an electrical device that transfers energy from one circuit to another by magnetic coupling with no moving parts. A transformer comprises two or more coupled windings, or a single tapped winding and, in most cases, a magnetic core to concentrate magnetic flux. A changing current in one winding creates a time-varying magnetic flux in the core, which induces a voltage in the other windings.
The transformer is one of the simplest of electrical devices, yet transformer designs and materials continue to be improved.
Transformers come in a range of sizes from a thumbnail-sized coupling transformer hidden inside a stage microphone to huge gigawatt units used to interconnect large portions of national power grids. All operate with the same basic principles and with many similarities in their parts.¶
The Hilden-Brand electromagnetic valve[+] has a permanent magnet core encaged in an iron cylinder. The cylinder closes the magnetic circuit, turning on the coil makes the iron wrapper assume the same polarity as the magnet inside of it. The permanent magnet isn't in a close circle now so it amplifies the electromagnet.¶
So I was thinking to build a transformer by that concept, a nice solid-state electric energy amplifier.
Looks to me like it can only work. :-)
In case the flux doesn't want to go true the coil I've designed an oscillator by the same concept.
The magnet in the center is pulled thru the coil from left to right by the hilden-brand coils at the left and right of it. The 3 enclosed systems should not interfere to much.
