Definition of two conductors at an angle

Identification strategy

To identify, from a geometrical point of view, two volume conductors positioned at an angle between them, the strategy adopted here relies on the angles of:

  • sharp bend
  • pitching
  • rolling

These three angles are identified in relationship with the direction of the current that passes through the two conductors.

The diagram below illustrates this definition.


  • ψ: sharp bend angle
  • φ: pitching angle
  • θ: rolling angle
