Hi, Russellz!I did what you suggested and attached a 1.5Ohm resistor in series with the coil. Connected an oscilloscope in parallel with the resistor. I was getting a consistent 9.2V across the resistor. That means a solid 6A. But that doesnt mean that this 6A flows to the coil too right? In theory, it should be a lot higher, right? So how do i move on from here? How do I find the current passing through the coil and subsequently increase it?Thanks,Toams
Simulation software isn't all it's made out to be.
it says that my coil current should reach about 60A in 500uS
After the 500uS interval, I open my switch to cut the current off.
You will probably also need to use several capacitors in parallel to get low enough ESR. Again, what are you using as a switch? That must also have a very low on resistance.
