Wire Internal Inductance
Internal Inductance Model
Internal inductance of a wire is:
Skin Depth is:
Inductance calculated using this tool is the internal inductance of a straight, circular wire. In many circumstances internal inductance is negligibly small compared to external inductance. As frequency increases, internal inductance decreases due to skin effect.
Assumptions and Limitations
Dimensions are in meters.
Wires are assumed to have circular cross sections and to be straight over their length.
Wire is assumed to be homogeneous medium having permeability .
Wire relative conductivity .
Permeability of free space: H/m
Conductivity of copper: = 5.98 x 10 7 S/m (Siemens per meter) at 20-degrees C
