Book Description

The only resource devoted Solely to Inductance

Inductance is an unprecedented text, thoroughly discussing "loop" inductance as well as the increasingly important "partial" inductance. These concepts and their proper calculation are crucial in designing modern high-speed digital systems. World-renowned leader in electromagnetics Clayton Paul provides the knowledge and tools necessary to understand and calculate inductance.

Unlike other texts, Inductance provides all the details about the derivations of the inductances of various inductors, as well as:

  • Fills the need for practical knowledge of partial inductance, which is essential to the prediction of power rail collapse and ground bounce problems in high-speed digital systems

  • Provides a needed refresher on the topics of magnetic fields

  • Addresses a missing link: the calculation of the values of the various physical constructions of inductors—both intentional inductors and unintentional inductors—from basic electromagnetic principles and laws

  • Features the detailed derivation of the loop and partial inductances of numerous configurations of current-carrying conductors

With the present and increasing emphasis on high-speed digital systems and high-frequency analog systems, it is imperative that system designers develop an intimate understanding of the concepts and methods in this book. Inductance is a much-needed textbook designed for senior and graduate-level engineering students, as well as a hands-on guide for working engineers and professionals engaged in the design of high-speed digital and high-frequency analog systems.

To motivate this review, a simplified physical model is in order. We'll do an AC generator. We start with a circular wire loop with some finite electrical resistance. We allow it to rotate about a diameter in a steady state (no variation with time) uniform magnetic field (B lines straight and parallel) at a constant slow angular velocity. With respect to the reference frame of the loop (circle lies in x'y' plane say and centered at its origin), the B field is no longer steady state. To see the variation, consider one point and its associated B vector in the initial non-loop xyz frame. As the loop rotates, it sees the B vector rotate in the exact opposite sense. A rotation matrix then depending on the product of angular velocity and time would be applied to this B vector in the loop frame to predict its direction. The position of our chosen point also varies in the loop frame, but this point must always map to its original xyz coordinates since the B vector in original direction and magnitude is defined by these values. This means the x'y'z'coordinates of the new B field make their appearance by applying the inverse rotation matrix to the x'y'z' coordinates (original xyz) and substituting these functions of x'y'z' for the xyz coordinates. After these two operations the new B field is entirely in loop frame coordinates. Flux is now easily calculated. Set z'=0 in the new B field (plane of the loop) and integrate this over the area of the circle in the x'y' plane (got the flux). Take minus the time derivative of this flux (Faraday's Law). Got the voltage in the loop! Here's the wall! We need the self inductance of the loop to calculate the current. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Reference August 31, 2013
This is a clear and well written book, and it is the best explanation I've seen on partial inductance. It should be of interest to engineers/researchers focused on modeling of stray inductances. Grover's book is more useful to most practicing engineers (and much cheaper).
