If so then can i give a fixed 5v supply to this circuit.vishal sutarhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/07713669722209089550noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8226950546477403054.post-42039914363312022282014-11-05T23:27:14.095+05:302014-11-05T23:27:14.095+05:30Hi Robin

Otherwise, we might get variation in readings.Abu-Hafsshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05225176577543770280noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8226950546477403054.post-72370427631797835072014-11-05T20:10:44.543+05:302014-11-05T20:10:44.543+05:30Thanks for testing the circuits!

Here is the waveform of the oscillation ...Hi Robin<br /><br />Here is the waveform of the oscillation <br /><br />https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/20969135/Waveform%20Ind%20Meter.png<br /><br />The frequency of oscillation depends on the L/R time constant comprising the inductor and resistors R1 and R2. The time the waveform takes to change its state is directly proportional to the inductance. In the waveform we see, the time taken for one complete cycle is 2µs for a 100µH inductor.<br /><br />In other words, inductance (100µH) = Time period (2µs) x 50 ..........(A)<br /><br />And we know, Frequency = 1 / Time Period OR Time Period = 1 / Frequency<br /><br />So replacing Time Period in Formula (A), we get<br /><br />Inductance (µH) <br /><br />= 50 x (1 / Frequency) OR<br />= 50 / Frequency (Hz) OR<br />= 50 x 1000 / Frequency (Hz) x 1000 OR<br />= 50,000 / Frequency (kHz)<br /><br />Please note, that this circuit is quite sensitive to the supply voltage and it is fairly good to about 10µH.<br /><br />It is good idea to a have a known value inductor say 100µH fixed in the circuit for calibration purpose. That calibration inductor and the inductor under test may be toggled using a SPDT switch.Abu-Hafsshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05225176577543770280noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8226950546477403054.post-7411677596385896592014-10-30T10:54:57.038+05:302014-10-30T10:54:57.038+05:30Hi Abu Hafss
