hello, could anybody tell me how to figure out the primary input pin(with approximate 1ohm coil inductance? how to find the polarity for 2 input pins as well..)and the secondary high voltage and ground pin for flyback transformer.. thanks

I assume you mean flyback transformer as used in a TV or computer monitor, not the kind of transformer used for (relatively) low-power switching power supplies. If I'm wrong, please correct!

There are several varieties of flyback transformer on the market. One kind has a terminal common to the primary and secondary, the other does not.

Often, the output is a separate socket or lead, with high voltage insulation - but not always.

To muddy the waters even further, many modern flybacks are actually integrated power supplies - commonly a voltage doubler or tripler is built in to the flyback itself.

So you need to be a bit more specific about what you need to know, and where you're starting from!

Good Luck,

About RF Cafe

Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
