A ferrite core pulse transformer provided with 12V PWM signal (as primary winding input voltage) as shown in Fig-1, produces irregular output voltage across the secondary winding as shown in Fig-2. I dont know why the ferrite core pulse transformer is doing like this; is it due to saturation of ferrite core pulse transformer or maybe low inductance of transformer primary winding? Pulse transformer winding ratio is 1:1 enter image description here

    \$\begingroup\$ If you have a manufactured pulse transformer, you also have a parameter: voltage product V*s, this means 12V multiplied by max. pulse width time. It's what @winny wants to tell you. The problem is the core saturation. \$\endgroup\$ – Marko Buršič Oct 25 '19 at 5:16
