Inductance Calculation Techniques - Part II: Approximations and Handbook Methods

By Marc C. Thompson and Ph. D


INTRODUCTION In the second part of this two part series on inductance calculation techniques, approximation techniques and handbook methods are shown for air-core structures that do not easily lend themselves to closed-form solutions. A set of references is also given which is useful for finding the inductance of many different loop shapes. Included are inductance calculations for polygons, disk coils, finite-length solenoids and fiat planar spirals. In some cases results are given without significant explanation, as the calculations are very complicated and the full calculations may be found in the references given. Many of the older references work out inductance problems in English units; to ease design these results have been converted to MKS units with inductance in Henries and length scales in meters. II. REFERENCE REVIEW Inductance calculation references necessarily start with Maxwell's seminal work [ 1 ], first published in 1873. Maxwell worked out some interesting inductan
