The paper reviews several expressions for high-frequency winding resistance of inductors proposed by several authors and compares the theoretical predictions calculated from these expressions with experimental results. It identifies the expressions that yield the most accurate prediction of the winding high-frequency resistance. The comparison shows that the method proposed by Dowell (1966) accurately predicts the AC resistance if the winding contains less than three layers. The methods proposed by several other authors accurately predict the high-frequency resistance only in certain frequency ranges. In addition, these expressions yield inaccurate results for the inductor quality factor. One expression, however, accurately predicts both the high-frequency winding resistance and the quality factor of inductors over a wide frequency range from the DC to the first resonant frequency. The paper concludes with a simple and accurate circuit model describing the frequency behavior of inductors
