001/100 Example 1.2-1 Reactance and Inductance with respect to Frequency

100 ADS Design Examples Based on the Textbook: RF and Microwave Circuit Design

Example 1.2-1: Calculate the reactance and inductance of a three inch length of AWG #28 copper wire in free space at 60 Hz, 500 MHz, and 1 GHz.



> The increase in reactance with respect to frequency represents the skin effect property, in which, as the frequency increases, the current density begins to be concentrated on the surface of a conductor.
