Flux linkage in terms of a straight conductor

  1. Oct 27, 2014 #1
    Taken from wikipedia, "If several turns of the wire are made, this becomes 3e3bb6563a2e2e18b997a3aafc4e1b53.png where N is the number of turns..." when speaking in terms of flux linkage and coils of a wire. However, in terms of a straight conductor (e.g. transmission lines), flux linkage for a meter long straight conductor has units of Weber-turn/meter, what is this weber-turn referring to? Basically, it's throwing me off because there aren't any turns. Is it essentially just the same as N = 1 in terms of a straight conductor? Thanks for any input.

    Thanks for the post! Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?
