Abstract : A sonar compensation transformer is added to a sonar transceiver circuit to obtain calibrated optimum performance from a sonar transducer using ceramic rings by slightly modifying the voltage of the transducer while at the same time allowing the transmit circuit to operate without appreciable change. The sonar compensation transformer is an improvement upon a conventional sonar transceiver circuit containing a transformer winding connected in series with a diode switch with the outer bounding connections of the transformer winding and the diode switch connected to the transducer element while the connection to the sonar transceiver is from a connection tapped into the winding of the sonar transformer and the connection winding of the sonar transformer and the connection from the outer bound of the diode switch.
