## Electromechanics: Linear Variable Differential Transformer (LVDT)

A Linear Variable Differential Transformer (LVDT) is a displacement transducer, used to measure displacement, based on the effect of the mutual inductances. It is…

## Electromechanics: Magnetic Reluctance Position Sensors

This magnetic structure is very simple due to its consistency and is very wide spread in the application of measuring linear and angular velocity.…
