Cables
Electric field around twisted pair

There may be a variety of electric or magnetic effects of interest with cables. The table below provides the suggested simulation software for different analysis types. In many cases the RLCG matrices are very useful (e.g. for cross-talk simulation). For this it is possible to combine the ELECTRO and OERSTED modules into a single program which combines the Circuit Parameters mode of each.
