As one kind of eddy current testing technology, the pulsed eddy current testing technology is based on the principle of electromagnetic induction and is used to detect the defects in conductive materials. The principle of pulsed eddy current testing is basically the same as that of traditional eddy current testing, and differences are the means of excitation and the signal analysis method.
