Abstract:

The note presents a resistive-inductive circuit representation of the coupling of transient currents to partially shielded conductors. The current coupled to the inner conductors is computed in terms of the shield current by use of lumped parameters directly related to the specific geometry of a given problem. The model is applied to an example where experimental data are available the peak value of the coupled current is a significant fraction of the exciting current that is, the shield is effectively short-circuited.
