Paper Abstract

A closed form expression for the electrical field of a line source over a multi-layered material can only be derived fro special geometries and cases. The use of the spectral domain, but this expression can normally not be transferred back into the space-domain. The solution is an approximation in the spectral domain by use of exponential terms which can easily be transferred back into the space-domain. This is done by use of Prony's method. The number of exponential terms has to be correctly estimated to avoid numerical difficulties. This paper presents a sophisticated method to determine the necessary number of exponential terms and shows how this approximation can be used to calculate inductances and capacitances for conductors with rectangular cross-sections.
