Inductance Calculator

Calculation of the Inductance of Wire Loops

The following program calculates the inductance of a rectangular wire loop made of copper wire and suggests a matching generator. In addition it calculates an optimal compensating capacitor for series connection at the operating frequency. For a capacitor suggested by you, the user, the voltage stress for said capacitor is calculated aswell as the output voltage needed from the generator at the given wire current.
