Description

In the pulsed eddy-current (PEC) method of flaw detection, repetitive pulses of current in a transmitter coil are used to excite eddy currents in the test specimen. A separate receiver is excited by the transmitted and reflected fields, and variations in the receiver response are used to locate and characterize material variations of interest.
