Inheritance diagram of BaseElectricDipole
class geoana.em.BaseElectricDipole(length=1.0, current=1.0, **kwargs)#

Base class for electric current dipoles.

The BaseElectricDipole class defines the basic properties for electric current dipoles. Where \(I\) is the current and \(d\mathbf{s}\) defines the direction and length of the dipole, the current dipole is defined as:

\[\mathbf{j_s}(\mathbf{r}) = Id \mathbf{s} \, \delta(|\mathbf{r} - \mathbf{r_s}|)\]

where \(\mathbf{r_s}\) is the location of the source. For more, visit EM GeoSci .

Parameters
lengthfloat, int

Length of the electric current dipole (m). Default is 1 m.

currentfloat, int

Current of the electric current dipole (A). Default is 1 A.

Attributes

current

Current in the electric current dipole (A)

length

Length of the electric current dipole (m)

location

Location of the dipole

orientation

Orientation of the dipole as a normalized vector

Methods

cross_orientation(xyz)

Cross products between a gridded set of vectors and the orientation of the source.

distance(xyz)

Scalar distance from dipole to a set of gridded xyz locations

dot_orientation(vecs)

Dot product between the orientation of the source and a gridded set of vectors.

vector_distance(xyz)

Vector distance to a set of gridded xyz locations.
