Abstract : A discussion is presented on the applicability of existing methods of solution for the series ferroresonant circuit when sensitive core materials are employed. A proposed modification of the Odessey and Weber graphical method of solution is included together with experimental verification. An analysis of the series circuit is based on the use of a rectangular B-H loop, and simple criteria are given for determining the initial jump point. Also, various modes of circuit operation other than the jump phenomena, which were experimentally encountered, are discussed. Considerations are presented on the use of the series circuit as an amplifier and the use of ferroresonance as a means for improving performance of existing magnetic amplifier circuits. The experimental results show improvement in both power gain per cycle and power output of the external feed-back and self-saturating magnetic amplifier circuits.
