Parameter Details

K1toN, K2toN...KN-1toN. These dynamic vector parameters contain user-defined coupling coefficients between coils. The number of these parameters is N-1. Vector KitoN contains coupling coefficients between coil #i and coils from #i+1 to #N. The size of these vectors decreases as i increases. For example, if N=5 then KitoN vectors contain coupling coefficients K_ij:

K1toN = {K_12, K_13, K_14, K_1_5}

K2toN = {K_23, K_24, K_25}

K3toN = {K_34, K_35}

K4toN = {K_45}

MUCN checks the actual size of each vector and displays an error message if the actual size differs from what is expected.

Parameter Restrictions and Recommendations

  1. Number of coils N must comply with restriction: 2≤N≤100.

  2. Coil inductance must be positive: Li >0, i=1…N

  3. Coil resistance must be non-negative: Ri ≥0, i=1...N

  4. Coupling coefficient between coils #i and #j must comply with restriction: -1≤K_ij≤1

Implementation Details

Pin numbers for each coil are assigned by the convention i = coupled port and N+i= output port for each coil, N = number of coils. For example for coil 1, 1 is the coupled port and N+1 is the output port. Vci is the voltage across coil #i, i=1…N:
