Ansoft Maxwell 3d Closely coupled inductor

  1. Dec 18, 2012 #1
    Hello! I am having an issue with getting any graphs on inductance or induced voltage.

    In the attached circuit:
    What I have is a 28Vac source w/ 400hz and 2 coils (R=18.6ohm each) that are connected with a common.

    In the model:

    I have a core in the center that will be able to move up changing the induced voltage and inductance when taken from the input of coil 1 and common or input of coil 2 and common. I know from experience (and hand calculations), that the coil will have 100mH from top to bottom when taken from input of coil 2 and output of coil 1 and with 50mH on each when the core is centered (obviously).

    Any help will be appreciated,
    (wrote this fast, sorry if it's hard to understand)
