Introduction

Linear variable differential transformers (LVDTs) are theoretically infinite-resolution displacement measurement devices. An LVDT operates by comparing the magnetic flux coupled into two transformer secondary windings to determine the displacement of a moving transformer core. A low distortion sine wave acts as the input. The amplitude and phase of the output signal across the two secondary windings determine ...
