I'm researching electromagnetism for a guitaramp project. I would like to experiment with different homemade transformers.
Find myself stuck trying to get a grip on the effect of the number of turns on the primary winding in relation to the risk of a saturated core. One the one hand more turns imply more inductance according to Inductance (L) = number of turns (N) times magnetic flux(Wb)/current (I). On the other hand it is well known that decreasing the number of turns on primary will increase flux density and the risk of saturation. I guess it must be the relation between number of turns and current that gives the answer, but find it hard to find good explanations. Anyone with a good advice?
