Hi againm
1) Does anyone know how to model the self capacitance between windings of a toroidal coil wounded on a nonmagnetic ring? or a ferrite ring?
Let's say that we have 40 turns, outer core diameter is 35mm and the relative permittivity of the ferrite is about 15.
I am interested in a simple model of the self capacitance as a limiting factor of the actual measured inductance at a frequency well below the upper limit due to the unwanted LC-effect.
2) Will the self-cap in air with close distance between turns (<1mm) or the self-cap across the core with larger distance (>6mm) be the most contributing cap?
3) How will self-cap change if the coil is wounded in 2 layers as opposed to one layer?
4) What about stray capacitance at low frequencies: f<10MHz? or f<1MHz?
Will it matter?

Best regards and
Vy 73 de OZ7ACS aka JPH

Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
