Tech Tip: Loop Test for Stator Cores ... Watch Your Excitation Amps

Watch for loop amps that are significantly higher than calculated. Do not change turns or voltage to achieve the calculated loop amps. Instead, adjust the input voltage to reach the calculated search coil volts per turn whenever possible. If loop amps are much higher than calculated, remember that magnetic material (e.g., steel) inside the loop becomes a part of the magnetic circuit.  A heavy frame could cause measurement errors.  The loop should be routed as close to the back iron as possible. 

The EASA Online Loop Test Calculator is a quick and easy way to calculate test parameters.
