# Re: [TCML] Secondary self frequency

Late message because I've been out of town. I use a home grown program to calculate SRF and here's what I get, based on a winding factor [turns / turns with no spaces] of 0.98:

Diameter = 4.5 "
Winding length = 18" [You didn't say whether the 18" was winding length or total form length]
SRF = 555 kHz
Self capacitance = 7.6 uufd
Top load capacitance = 19.4 uufd
Loaded resonant frequency = 295 kHz
Turns = 653
DC resistance = 12.4  ohms

Not too far from what you got so your results don't sound strange to me.

Does this sound strange to anyone. A 4" OD x 22" (windings) secondary using 22 gauge wire with a 4.5" x 18" spun alum toroid having a self res freq of around 515kHz? I ran the tests in the lab today and thats what im getting. For some reason though, I had reason to believe it was going to be much lower. I'm gonna resubmit this email next Thursday when I get a chance to get back in the lab and im gonna take a video of myself taking the measurements. Maybe im just doing something wrong.
