Abstract:

The present invention relates to a device used for measuring the permittivity of insulating materials over a broad range of frequencies. The electrical property of an insulator is an important piece of information that gives the designer the ability to choose the most appropriate material for a given application. Of the numerous electric characteristics that describe a given insulator, the relative permittivity Symbol Er receives attention because the relative permittivity describes an insulators ability to store andor dissipate electric field energy. This is symbolized by writing Er, explicitly as the complex quantity.
