Capacitance in a transformer winding cannot be avoided. The
voltage differences between turns, between winding layers and between windings
to the core create these parasitic elements.
In general, the designers' task is to keep capacitance to a minimum. It is helpful to have a general understanding
of how capacitance occurs, references to formula for calculating, how
capacitance is modeled, how distributed capacitance (Cd) is measured (with
three cautionary notes) and guidelines to aid in evaluating / measuring Cd. Download now to learn more!
