Hello everyone,

In my continuing pursuit of understanding of oscillator circuits, I came up with this question and was wondering if anyone here could give me some insight on this. I drew a picture to help me explain the idea but I would like to know what would happen if you have an inductor (air core solenoid for example) and you wrap a second coil around the first coil at 90 degrees to it. If the solenoid coil has an AC sine wave signal put through it, would the second coil experience induction in the same way as normal? If this solenoid coil were part of an oscillator, how would the presence of this second coil effect its operation (Particularly if a load is placed on it)? Would it change the resonant frequency of the oscillator circuit or simply dampen it?? I heard of someone who did a similar experiment and they say the second inductor produces pulsed DC... not sure though. Any help would be appreciated :-).

Thanks,

Jason O
