# LC Meter Circuit, Coil Capacitor Meter

This LC meter circuit can measure coils and capacitors. When Lx or Cx is connected in the circuit the oscillator frequency will decrease and this decrease is measured by a frequency-voltage converter build with T3 and T4. To adjust this lc meter circuit with P1 and P2. LC meter precision is 3%.
Scale calibration can be achieved with this formula: ni = nm(1 – fr)/(1 – fc) where ni is number of divisions measured on the scale, nm = total number of division of the scale, fr = relative frequency, fc = the smallest relative frequency measured.

The total power consumption is 12mA at 12V when the LC measurement occur.

Sir u know how to design a transformer,there formulas?
E=4.44fФN Here Ф=Bm*A (In Tesla or Weber/m sq)
Bm=Flux Density of core which we use as low magnetic reluctance path.
basicaly every designer stops at this point,bcoz he has no idea about the quantity of flux density of material that how many magnetic lines of force will passes through in it.In short plz tell me simple formula to design tranformer & flux density of iron core material in teslas?Thanks
