This work presents a field-circuit-coupled method to investigate differences between intrinsic and measured permittivities for a Mn-Zn ferrite. Electric and magnetic fields in a flat cylindrical ferrite, which is used here to construct a ferrite capacitor, are solved analytically. Then, complex power supplied to the capacitor is calculated. On the basis of the complex power, parameters in an equivalent circuit for the ferrite capacitor are extracted. The paper examines the validity of the developed mathematical model. Numerical results show that for a ferrite with high permeabilities, measured permittivities follow intrinsic values well at low frequency but fail to embody the intrinsic values when the frequency runs above several hundred kilohertz. Numerical results also demonstrate that the dimensions of the sample under investigation play a role in measurement errors. The larger the radius of the cylindrical ferrite is, the higher the errors are. Correction curves are generated, from which the measured permittivities can be corrected to reflect the intrinsic values.
