Looks pretty good from this one set of readings. However I think you
should review all the available readings - it can be misleading if you
focus too closely on one set. eg your measurements with this version
of acmi give 4% to 7% error on k. I have no grounds for preferring one
set above another, so they all must be considered. Also, you'll notice
the primary self inductance is a long way out - several percent.
I would say then that the good results you show are not

I don't know what refinements your're making here, other than putting
in Terry's latest dimensions and converting units. The temptation to
tweak the input measurements to get better agreement must be resisted.

Err, too late :). I've made a few improvements which will have upset
your nice results but give a better overall agreement. They can be
reversed easily enough if proved to be inappropriate.
Keep up the good work, and don't worry - if your comparison of acmi
with Terry's results turns out to be a correct assessment of the program's
accuracy, we'll achieve it again, rest assured.
