    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?
