This is the "Tesla coil friendly" preprocessor for fasthenry. I now
have it working for two vertically wound coupled coils of arbitrary
dimension and winding. I need to add the ground plane, and the flat
spiral. I have the x,y=f(phi) equations for the Archimedes spiral, but
need to find tune it to deal with closewound wire and different
spacings. When that is done, I will work on the spice model
generation. I haven't even tried that yet. You are on your own for
adding lumped capacitance. There is another program called "fastcap"
that is a capacitance field solver for complex shaped objects. Search
for it on Google if you are interested.
I am using the following programming philosophy:
2. all coil data is in a file, this makes record keeping easy
3. I will supply demo input files in the package, plus a small readme
4. you have to download Python. www.activestate-dot-com for Windows and
www.python-dot-org for Linux/Unix.
You may like this language, as it looks alot like BASIC, but you can
easily advance to Object
Oriented Computing, etc. It has a console where you can type in and
execute statements directly
(e.g. use it as a calculator).
It comes with a very good IDE called Idle. All FREE.
5. I will make a link on my site below called Coilers Corner, or
something similar, and put the files
6. Look in the archive for my links to fasthenry.
If I stay in the programming mode, I should be able to get some alpha
version up on the web site today.
