Capacitors, Magnetic Circuits, and Transformers is a free introductory textbook on the physics of capacitors, coils, and transformers. See the editorial for more information....


This edition of the eBook "Capacitors, Magnetic Circuits, and Transformers" is based on the printed copy of Leander W. Matsch's book "Capacitors, Magnetic Circuits, and Transformers" published in 1954. As the copyright of this book has not been renewed in 1964 it has fallen into public domain (click here for more information on copyright renewal).

We included this book into the VIAS collection for its clear discussion of basic physical principles. We thus took it, converted it to HTML and compiled it into an introduction on the physical principles of electrical devices such as capacitors, coils, transformers and reactors. Further, we added a few new images, and converted the already existing images to a common style, so that the eBook can be regarded as a homogeneous and modern work, despite its considerable age.

At this point we want to thank Pete Millet who provided an extraordinary contribution to the electronics community by scanning many old books which have fallen into public domain. See his home page for more.

Finally, we decided to additionally publish this eBook as an MS Windows HTMLHelp file offering the same navigation structure as the Web-based version. We hope that this service makes it easier for many students to get deeper into the physical principles of the most fuindamental electrical devices.
