Parasitic capacitance, inter-capacitance and intra-capacitance
Which is the difference between parasitic capacitance, inter-capacitance and intra-capacitance?
Intercapacitance is the capacity between two wires that are close in a winding, intracapacitance is the capacity between two windings, and both are parasitic capacitances in a transformer.
The parasitic capacitance is a capacitance that exists due to the fact that there is a proximity between two elements. It happens with most electronic components, it is very common. When two electrical conductors at different voltages are together, the electric field between them causes electric charge to be stored in them; this effect is capacitance.
