Electromagnetic Field of Accelerated Charges in Inertial Frames with Substratum Flow

  • H.E. Wilhelm


By means of the generalized Galilei covariant EM field equations, the EM potentials and EM fields of a charged particle moving with an arbitrary nonuniform velocity v(t) in an inertial frame with substratum flow w are calculated. It is shown that the dynamic EM fields are excitations of the EM ether caused by the motion v(t) - w of the charge relative to the wave carrier with velocity w. Qualitatively and quantitatively significant EM inductions and convective deformations of EM fields by the ether flow w exist in inertial frames with ether velocities w~c0 comparable to the velocity of light. For many terrestrial applications, the ordinary Maxwell equations agree in good approximation with the Galilei covariant EM field equations since w/c0~ 10-3 on the earth
