Could you explain the theory of this a bit more, please. I though that to de-sulphate a battery you needed high current pulses into it, not discharge pulses. Indeed, if the battery is high impedance, then you cannot get high current discharge pulses. So perhaps this circuit is only designed to keep good batteries "alive". I have previously seen circuits which use an inductor to get a high voltage pulse to breadown sulphation. Tony

That is exactly what it is, Arnoldus. The circut belongs to the family of gyrators, like the Antoniou and the Riordan gyrator. You find many names for it : simulated inductor, synthetic inductor, active inductor. But gyrator is the collective name. I chose for a simple version of the gyrator, because these are easier to understand and also easier to manipulate. I needed a bad inductor with some loss, so the current changes in a semi-exponential way instead of linearly. By tweaking the components of the simulated inductor, i was able to make a "lossy" one. Simply stated : the active inductor i used is a capacitor that is inverted by the transistor, so it behaves like an inductor.

There are a lot of ways leading to Rome... Hi Roel, your 'synthetic inductor' looks very much like a Gyrator! Ever heard off?
