Explanation some technical terms for magnetic component(11)

Distributed capacitance
In the construction of an inductor, each turn of wire or conductor acts as a capacitor plate, the combined effects of each turn can be represented as a single capacitance knows as the distributed capacitance,this capacitance is in parallel with the inductor, this parallel combination will resonate at some frequency with is called the self-resonant frequency(SRF), lower distributed capacitances for a given inductance value will result in a higher SRF value and vice versa.
