Abstract : A procedure, Function TDP, and its associated subroutines and functions, determines a consistent set of values for dependent design parameters for a given set of independent design parameter values. A listing of transformer design parameters and a consistent set of units are presented. These are passed in and out of TDP through a 300 element array PV in labeled common block PVDC. Section 2 discusses general features and limitations of TDP. Considerations that must be taken into account in order to avoid infeasable transformer designs are discussed in Section 3. Program TDPLOT is an aid in optimizing transformer designs. This procedure generates an output in the form of 3-dimensional line printer and/or Cal-Comp plots of the objective function and final transformer design parameter values. A description of the input required by PROGRAM TDPLOT and the output that is generated is discussed in Section 4. Appendix 2 discusses computing system requirements and presents an example run. An FTN compiler source listing of the program is provided in Appendix 3.
