I think we are looking in the wrong direction about the restriction of current!

We need to start investigating the 180 degrees phase shift(voltage amplitudes) of the inductors Stan talked about in all his lectures.

What happens in the choke inductor to the current, it lags **about **90 degrees to the voltage (theoretically for perfect inductors).

For sinusoidal waves, the voltage across an inductor leads the current through it by 90º

This is never the case on all frequencies according to LCR measurements on fixed frequencies (100,120, 1k, 10kHz)

I'm measuring +83.97 deg to +88.95 deg for chokes phases. And +34.19 deg to +88.93 deg without a core!!

For sinusoidal waves, the current through a capacitor leads the voltage across it by 90º

When we measure the WFC capacitor it not reads as a capacitor, only when it's empty!

Stan mentions in his documents that the WFC acts like a resistor on resonance? So there is no phase shift (0 deg).

Empty WFC is -9.09 deg to -78.4 deg.

Tap water WFC -41.2 deg to -1.57 deg.

Rain water WFC -9.28 deg to -0.822 deg.

Why did Stan use the adjustable symbol for the negative inductor? Yes, we know to adjust the equal but opposite voltages...

Question:

What happens when inductor current is almost 90 deg for chokes and if one choke is connected opposite polarity in respect to the voltages?

What if the phase is unequal and equal respect to each other and has this an restricting effect on current using the magnetic field in the UU-core of the VIC.
