A new method for predicting the stray capacitance of inductors is presented. The method is based on an analytical approach and the physical structure of inductors. The inductor winding is partitioned into basic celles many of which are identical. An expression for the equivalent capacitance of basic cell is derived. Using this expression, the stray capacitance is found for both single- and multiple-layer coils, including the presence of the core. The method was tested with experimental measurements. The accuracy of the result is good. The derived expressions are useful for designing inductors and can be used for simulation purposes.
