A strong selection factor was the fact that in a standard capacitor the electrical pa- c 2000 by CRC Press LLC rameter are closest to the parameters of an ideal capacitor. Hence, not only a capacitance is measured in terms of capacitance (in resistive ratio arms bridges), but the inductance as well is measured in terms of capacitance (Hay and Owen bridges). The AC bridges with ratio arms that are tightly coupled inductances allow measurement of a very small difference between currents in these inductances, and this fact is used in very sensitive capacitance transducers.
