Problem 1
For the three coupled coils in the figure, calculate the total inductance.
10H
Problem 2
Two coils connected in series-aiding fashion have a total inductance of 250 mH. When connected in a
series-opposing configuration, the coils have a total inductance of 150 mH. If the inductance of one
coil (L1) is three times the other, find L1, L2, and M. What is the coupling coefficient?
150mH; 50mH; 25mH; 0.29
Problem 3
Two coils are mutually coupled. L1 = 25 mH, L2 = 60 mH, and k = 0.5. Calculate the maximum possible
equivalent inductance if:
(a) the two coils are connected in series,
(b) the coils are connected in parallel.
123.7mH; 24.31mH
Problem 4
