Convert between loss tangent and conductivity

A script to convert between loss tangent and conductivity.

It is possible to convert between the loss tangent and conductivity description of the material losses at a single frequency. This script performs the calculation and can be used in CADFEKO and POSTFEKO.


Loss tangent <-> Conductivity conversion tool


Add the script to the macro library or run it directly from the script editor. The script is easy to use:

  1. Select the conversion of interest (calculate loss tangent from the conductivity or calculate the conductivity from the loss tangent).
  2. Enter the frequency and relative permittivity.
  3. Enter in the loss tangent or conductivity.
  4. Click on "Calculate" to see the result.
  5. Click on "Close" to close the dialog.
