I am trying to use the Chan model to better simulate a transformer in my design. When I am making an equivalent transformer circuit, where does the Chan inductor go?
On the LTWiki it is implied that inductors based on core properties go on the center 'node' of the expanded transformer, but other sources say it should go across any one of the windings.
My next question is, wherever it does go, does it model both hysteresis AND eddy currents or do I need a parallel resistor as well for correct modeling?
Finally, is the N parameter the total number of windings of the transformer(what the core would see), the number of turns of the specific winding the Chan core is across, or just N = 1?
I have tried looking through the manual and the Yahoo group but if anyone has any experience with the Chan core I would appreciate any advice.
