Magnetically Coupled Circuit
Magnetically Coupled Circuit  When two inductors are placed physically closed to each other then due flow in the first inductor, some flux is produced in the first inductor. part ot this flux will link with second inductor. therefore, using faraday’s law of electromagnetic induction this rate of change of flux will induce. some voltage across the second inductor. this induced emf will be additive or subtractive in nature.
All the KVL equation in the given network are then modified.
. Effect of M is positive.
e1 = L1 dI1/dt + M dI2
e2 = L2 dI2/dt + M dI1/dt
Assume zero initial conditions,
e1(s) = sL1I1 (s) + s MI2 (s)
e2 (s) = sL2 I2 (s) + MsI1 (s)
|e1 (s)| = |sL1  sM||I1 (s)|
|e2 (s)| = |sM   sL2||I2 (s)|
[V1/V2] = joL1/JoM    joM/joL2] [I1/I2]
. Effect of M is negative.
. Induced voltage is subtractive.
e1 = L1 dI1/dt – M dI2/dt
e2 = – M dI1/dt + L2 dI2/dt (in time domain)
Assume zero initial conditions
|e1 (s)/e2 (s)] = sL1 – sM/-sM  sL2] [I1 (s)/I2 (s)
[e1/e2] = [joL1 – joM/-jM  JoL2] [I1/I2]
Representation of M
(i)  in terms of M
(ii) in terms of K
K = coupling coefficient
K = M/L1L2
K = 1, Critical coupling (critically coupled networks)
K < 1, Loose coupling (under coupled networks)
K > 1, Tight coupling (over coupled networks)
(iii) in terms of turns ratio
e1/e2 = n1/n2 = I2/I1
Example 1. (a) LEQ = L1 + L2
(b)  LEQ = L1 (effective) + L2 (effective)
LEQ = L1 + M + L2 + M
LEQ = L1 + L2 + 2M
(c) LEQ = L2 (effective) + L2 (effective)
LEQ = L1 + L2 – 2M
(d) LEQ = L1 (effective) L2 (effective)
LEQ = L1 + L2 – 2M
Example 2.  Draw the KVL equation of the circuit shown in fig. (a), after drawing the dotted equivalent.
Sol. The dotted equivalent and the voltage equivalent is shown in fig. (b) and fig. (c) respectively. Applying KVL to the circuit of fig. (c), we get
RI + L1 dI/dt – M dI/dt + 1/C |I dt + L2 di/dt – M dI/dt = V
RI = L dI/dt + 1/C |I dt = V
L’ = L1 + L2 – 2M
Example 3. Obtain the dotted equivalent of the circuit shown in fig. (a). write the KVL equation and obtain the voltage across the capacitor C, where R1 = R2 = 5. 0L1 = 0L2 = 5, 0C = 0.1 and 0M = 2 V1 = 10 V, V2 = J 10 V.
Sol. To place the dots, consider only the coils and their winding sense. drive the current into the top of the left coil and place a dot at this terminal. the corresponding flux is upward. by lenz’s law, the flux at the right coil must be upward, directed to oppose the first flux. then the natural current leaves this winding by the upper terminal which is marked with a dot. the dotted equivalent circuit is shown in figure. the KVL equations can be written from fig. (c) by putting the values of the components as
|5 – j5   5 + j3/5 + j3   10 + j6|[I1/I2] = [10/10 – J10]
Solving for I,
|10    5 + j3/10 – j10  10 + j6/5 – j5   5 + j3/ 5 + j3  10 + j6| = 1.015 < 113.960 A
The voltage across the capacitor C is
V = I1 (-j10) = 10.15 V
