Multilayer air core inductor design calculator
The formula used in this calculation is from the famous Wheelers approximations which is accurate to <1% if the cross section is near square shaped. L (uH) =31.6*N^2* r1^2 / 6*r1+ 9*L + 10*(r2r1) where… Please note that the diameter is measured from center of wire trough center of the coil and to center of…

Flat spiral air core inductor design calculator
This is an popular coil geometri used in todays wireless charger circuits. The formula used in this calculation is based on the Harold A. Wheeler approximations for air core flat spiral coil inductor. …where: 1 inch = 0,0254m=2,54cm = 25,4mm. This formula applies at ‘low’ frequencies (<30MHz) using enameled copper wire. Some people call it…

Planar spiral coil inductor design
The first approximation is based on a modification of an expression developed by Wheeler; the second is derived from electromagnetic principles by approximating the sides of the spirals as currentsheets; and the third is a monomial expression derived from fitting to a large database of inductors (and the exact inductance values). All three expressions are…
