Skopec: Effective Area of Thin Guarded Electrode in Determining of Permittivity and Volume Resistivity

ABSTRACT

Effective area of guarded electrode is always larger than its geometrical area as a result

of fringing effect. In most standards concerning permittivity and volume resistivity

measurements, an increase in the effective fringing is assumed as a half of the width of

the gap between the guarded electrode and the guard electrode (then the factor B = 1).

In some standards, the increase calculated from Amey relation, is assumed to be

smaller (B < 1). The Amey relation is exact only for sample permittivity Hof. It is

correct to apply the relation to calculate the volume resistivity, but it is incorrect to use

it to calculate the permittivity of a sample. In this paper, a proper relation for the

factor B has been derived analytically for thin electrodes made usually by thin film

technology. The factor B can be used to calculate the permittivity of samples with

arbitrary value of H. Appropriate changes into the standard IEC 60250 and into other

standards concerning permittivity measurements are proposed.
