The design of inductors is not an easy and cheap task considering the dimensions, the nominal value of inductance, the quality factor and the impedance of the component. Before the beginning of manufacturing a new type of inductors, a lot of trial components have to produce, have to measure and have to try out. Finite element modeling is a well-tried process to examine engineering products before manufacturing them. To reduce the cost and the time of the design process, in the paper a finite element model has been built up to simulate inductors. In the paper the model is presented, which is able to simulate the important attributes of the component, for example the inductance, the impedance and the quality factor. The comparison of the experimental and the simulated attributes of the inductor will also be shown. By using the built up model the development possibilities of the inductor have been examined through the modification of the winding.
