    Hello everyone,

    After a tremendous amount of study I have learned how to design low power broadband transformers which provide clean output waveforms with very little distortion.

    I want to design a broadband xmfr with an inductive element on the same core (I like challenges) so that I can get it to operate in continuous conduction mode. I'm just wondering if anyone here could point me in the right direction as far as literature and information go? And tell me how difficult this design would be, if it's even possible.

    You already have an inductive component, but it is probably very small. As you decrease the coupling between your primary and secondary (assuming a simple transformer) you will see leakage inductance appear. If that's what you are after.
