Wire Over Ground Plane Capacitance Capacitance Calculators
Wire Over Ground Plane Capacitance Model
Capacitance between the wire and ground plane is:
The capacitance calculated using this tool is the capacitance between the wire and the ground plane over the wire length. Model accounts for proximity effect of a wire close to ground plane.
Assumptions and Limitations
Dimensions are in meters.
Ground plane is assumed to be perfectly conducting and of infinite extent.
Wire is assumed to have circular cross section and to have uniform height above ground.
Wires are assumed to reside in a homogeneous medium having permeability of free space and relative permittivity .
Permeability of free space: H/m
Permittivity of air: F/m
