Brooks coil

Brooks coil has specially adjusted dimensions, which assure maximum value of inductance with a given length of wire.

Problem type:
Axisymmetric problem of DC magnetics

Geometry:

Brooks coil model Brooks coil has specially adjusted dimensions, which assure maximum value of inductance with a given length of wire. c 2c 3c 4c

Given:
Current I = 1 A,
Number of turns N = 200,
c = 20 mm.

Problem:
Calculate Brooks coil inductance.

Solution:
Brooks coil inductance can be calculated using equation:
L = 1.6994·10-6·(3/2·cN2 [H]*,
where N - number of turns.

Results:
Theoretical value L = 1.6994·10-6·(3/2·20·10-3)·2002 = 0.002039 H.
