Transient Currents in a Double Conductor Line above a Conducting Half-Space

Authors: Inta Volodko, Valentina Koliskina


Transient eddy current problem is solved in the present paper by the method of the Laplace transform for the case of a double conductor line located parallel to a conducting half-space. The Fourier sine and cosine integral transforms are used in order to find the Laplace transform of the solution. The inverse Laplace transform of the solution is found in closed form. The integrated electromotive force per unit length of the double conductor line is calculated in the form of an improper integral.

Keywords: Laplace transform, Transient eddy currents, double conductor line
