All of the information I could gather on this subject, describes the
cofiguration of this device as either a 3 leg core, 2 torroids, a U core or
EI. I could not locate any descriptions for the EI core.

Pictured above is a depiction of how I think the cores would be
arranged(based on descriptions stating that the flux path is canceled in
the leg containing the control winding to prevent induced voltage).

NOTE: Please bear in mind that this is only a thought at this point. No
components have been gathered or assembled.

Am I on the right track here?
