Need help with shorted turn info. I am aware of eddy currents caused
by shorted turns in a transformer or solenoid driven by an A.C.
voltage. Also that a D.C. solenoid can have a metal former as there is
no alternating current to prduce eddy currents.
But I wish to build a solenoid D.C. driven, but switching off & on at
about 3 Hz. Will a shorted turn ( alluminium former) cause a problem.
(efficiency is very important) All constructive comments welcome.
