    center tapped inductor

    in my circuit a am using center tapped inductor.. i need to simulate that circuit in orcad 16.3 whether in orcad center tapped inductor is available or else wat i have to do to produce the same effect in my simulated circuit...

    Re: center tapped inductor

    Yes, they are available. You can find the part in anl_misc.olb. probably XFRM_LIN/CT-SEC would serve your purpose. I assume you meant center tap transformer. Not sure what is meant by centre tap inductor, anyway you can simulate that connecting two inductors in series.

    ... and including some mutual coupling between them.

    Re: center tapped inductor

    I don't use Pspice but the Spice netlist syntax is to add a device:

    K1 L1 L2 0.99

    Where K1 is the mutual coupling with a coupling of 0.99 and L1, L2 are the two inductors. It is important to get the inductors the correct way round to behave like a tapped inductor.
