Is there a recommended way of measuring the parasitic capaictance of an inductor coil or planar inductor?
Any advice is appreciated :)

The solution could be a dual channel oscilloscope in differential signal configuration.
Common signals should be canceled (if the probes in both channel are identical) but the signal from the coil should be displayed.
(This could be a solution in low frequency range, I am not sure if it will be effective at 10 MHz ).

I've measured in anechoic chamber the input impedance of a coil loaded monopole resonating near 487 MHz. I've calibrated the Network Analyzer up to the point where I've attached the antenna. My need was to determine the input impedance of the antenna so I take a measurement of the magnitude and of the phase o

When the contactor is in open state, the inductance of the contactor coil is low so that a higher current will pass through it (as there is an air gap in its magnetic path).
When the contactor is closed, the inductance of the contactor coil increase so less current is passed through it (since there is a smaller (or no!?) air gap in its magnetic

I could be way off on this, but it seems that if you want to measure current, wrap a coil around the hot wire and measure the induced voltage. With a current from 0 to about 2.5 amps you should have no problem measuring a voltage.

i actually did this once, for 600V bridge with 100A throughput. i used rogowski coil as FvM suggest (the green sense wire comes in all sizes). it only measures AC current, so keep that in mind, but it has huge bandwidth.

A coil placed near the motor might pick up a sinewave by induction.
You might have to experiment with different types of coils (low vs. high inductance, containing iron vs. containing none, etc.).
You might have to try it in different locations (near windings, near an opening in the housing, etc.).

As you should learn and then find a solution, I can recommend the easiest way (I also worked with shaking tables).
Connect an analog sensor to an oscilloscope. Shake the table to see sensor response.
As a sensor, you can use a piezo element coupled to the table and its base so it can be lightly bent by shaking.

Additional to the classic current transformer method, there are now available devices which look like current transformers in that they generally have a toroid form that you pass the current wire through, (optionally with more than 1 turn), but are Hall-effect sensors.

You may want to tell about the time constant of the said capacitor-coil (LRC) circuit, but according to the switching speed of most coils, I won't expect more than a few ten or maximum one hundred ms. So obviously, the involved frequency range is much above "zero" hertz. Actually, it isn't too far apart from usually specified ESR frequency range.
