Hello everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am working on a coil design and have a question.

The coil is meant to operate in continuous conduction mode, so the current waveform is a ramp waveform.

B=V*t / N*Ae

When calculating V*t do I use 1/2 t (since the current only increases for the first half of the ramp waveform) or do I use the full length of t?
