# Stray capacitances in the watt balance operation: electrostatic forces

@article{Quagliotti2014StrayCI, title={Stray capacitances in the watt balance operation: electrostatic forces}, author={Danilo Quagliotti and G Mana}, journal={Metrologia}, year={2014}, volume={51}, pages={S72 - S79} }

In a watt balance, stray capacitances exist between the coil and the magnet. Since the electric current flowing in the coil creates a difference in electric potentials between the coil and magnet, their electrostatic interactions must be taken into account. This paper reports the results of a finite element analysis of the forces acting on the coil.
