The passive magnetic ferrite components used in EMI filters have a complex magnetic permeability (CMP) which varies with frequency. The CMP in frequency range from 150 kHz to 30MHz is not given by manufactures. Moreover, measurement techniques require some specific size and shape of sample to measure CMP of ferrites. Common application of these passives components are EMI filters, where toroid ferrite cores need to be characterized to determine the insertion loss function. In this paper a CMP measure procedure is proposed. The leakage inductance and parasitic capacitance of an inductor are determined. Then, a rational function approximation (RTA) is applied to represent the HF equivalent impedance of CMP.
