Resistive and Inductive Skin Effect in Rectangular Conductors
by W. T. Weeks, L. L.-H. Wu, M. F. McAllister, A. Singh
A model based on network theory is presented for calculating the frequency-dependent resistance and inductance per unit length matrices for transmission line systems consisting of conductors with rectangular cross sections. The calculated results are compared with actual measurements. Excellent agreement is obtained over a wide range of frequencies, including the mid-range where neither dc values nor high-frequency limit values apply.
