Flux reflection model of the ferroresonant circuit. (English) Zbl 1181.78013

Summary: The paper presents a linear model of a ferroresonant circuit with flux reflection. The proposed model – called flux reflection model – derives from observations of typical flux waveforms of a nonlinear coil during ferroresonant steady states. Simulation results of the flux reflection model are compared with simulation results of the usual nonlinear model as well as with measurements carried out on the physical model of the ferroresonant circuit. The flux reflection model enables a novel comprehension of the ferroresonant circuit behavior and simplifies the modeling of the nonlinear coil in a ferroresonant circuit.
