Hope you can help me with my small project. I have a coil, hooked up to a capacitor such as this
Coil = 0.0000137H Capacitor = 16V 2200uF Power Supply = 10V DC
My coil is of AWG 31(0.227m diameter) wound about a 3m diameter, 8mm length core with 50 turns. Calculations say I have about 0.0000137 H (From an online calculator). Putting this all into a simulations software(PSIM), it says that my coil current should reach about 60A in 500uS ( I assume that the software already takes into account all of the inductance and complexities of coils) . After the 500uS interval, I open my switch to cut the current off.
When I built my circuit, I hooked up a multimeter in series with the coil and am only reading a max of 2uA!. WTH.
So I guess my question is, what went wrong and how do I get more amps to my coil? (I need a temporary strong magnetic field lasting only 500us)
