IN THE self-saturating type of magnetic amplifier it is desirable to bias the saturable reactor to a particular point on its hysteresis loop. Higher gain and better linearity of the transfer function can be achieved in this manner. Shunt paths around the diodes of the magnetic amplifier afford a convenient means of biasing the saturable reactors.
