For a couple of days ago Dronebot published a video how to measure voltage and current with Arduino.
Is it possible to measure inductance with an Arduino?
With a voltmeter across the inductor you have to measure the change in current so you will end up making two measurements the current, voltage at time 0 and the current voltage at time 1. You would pulse the inductor and the voltage would remain constant and the current would ramp up.
I never tried it but just using the equation this is how I would try it.
I said use a voltmeter but you would want to use adc input to measure voltage and calculate in software the inductance.
I've been looking for a project for TTGO esp32 and it would be nice to have a portable inductance meter to sort all the miscellaneous inductors I have from scrapping old electrical components.
Inductance can be measured by sending a puls into an L-C parallel construction.
The L-C will oscillate and we can measure the frequentie.
Using the pulseIn command of the arduino language and calculate than the L inductance, it is possible to show the inductance on LCD.
have already made a working project for myself. I can send you the info but don't know how.
My intention is to adapt the program and run it via an ATtiny85.
Apparently the tiny85 can't read the pulseIn () after all ! ?
