Abstract:

Equations have been derived for the output signal V sub s of an inductive probe excited by the capacitive discharge of a series RLC circuit. These equations are applicable to both the strongly coupled and the weakly coupled probe and can be used to obtain design criteria or to correctly interpret a measured output signal. Quite generally the equations show that the magnitude and time dependence of V sub s are not related to those of the discharge current by Mdidt unless certain inequalities exist between the three parameters alpha, beta and gamma.
