Creating a Cable Shield Layer (Transfer Capacitance)

The transfer capacitance shield layer is used with a braided and frequency-dependent impedance definition to represent the transfer admittance matrix of the shield layer.

Specify the transfer admittance (Yt) for a shield layer in Farad per meter.
  1. On the Cables tab, in the Definitions group, click the  Cable Shield icon.
  2. Under Shield layer(s), click Single to create a single-layered shield.
  3. On the Inner layer tab, on the Admittance definition tab, from the Definition method drop-down list, select Transfer capacitance.

    Figure 1. The Create Cable Shield dialog.
  4. In the Capacitance (F/m) field, enter a value for the transfer capacitance in Farad per meter.
