Chapter 4: Induction Coils
This chapter discusses the design and operating principles of various types of electromagnetic coils. It explains how induction coils are classified based on the direction of the eddy currents they induce in the workpiece and the corresponding orientation, whether longitudinal or transverse, of the associated magnetic flux. It then discusses the factors that influence coil design and selection, including coupling efficiency, frequency, the number and spacing of turns, and the use of flux intensifiers. It also includes images and illustrations of various types of coils and coil geometries for basic as well as special purpose applications.
