PPTools contains several tools designed to ease the life of people working in the Pulsed Power field. It can also be useful for people working in electronics.
PPTools contains an RLC circuit solver, a resistor color coding solver, a liquid resistor solver, an inductance calculator, and a skin depth effect calculator. It should greatly help when doing quick calculations for the design of experiments, or when analyzing experimental results.
Here are some key features of "PPTools":
Solving of RLC circuit: give all parameters but two, solve the two unknowns!
Resistors color coding: enter the color code, read the resistance value! Or enter the resistance you need, then read the closest color code!
Liquid resistors solver: give all parameters but one, solve the unknown!
Inductances calculator: select the geometry, enter the parameters, then read the associated inductance and capacitance! (flux leakage coefficients included, according to Knoepfel calculations)
Skin depth calculator: select the applied signal shape, select the electrodes materials, give all parameters but one, solve the unknown!
Help window describing all the features and giving details about the calculations (in About tab).
What's New in This Release:
The liquid resistors calculator now gives correct answers and more solutions are available.
The resistor color code solver has been almost totally rewritten and is now much more accurate and smart.
The inductance/capacitance calculator was previously wrong for some capacitance calculations; now it is either correct (and proven) or a warning is displayed.
The documentation has also been updated.
