Inductor

By November 25, 2022No Comments

An inductor is a coil of wire that creates a magnetic field when current flows through it. The strength of the magnetic field depends on the number of turns in the coil and the amount of current flowing through it. Inductors are used in electrical circuits to store energy in the form of a magnetic field. When inductors are connected in series, they create a circuit with high impedance, which can be used to block AC signals while allowing DC signals to pass through.

Inductance is a property of an electrical conductor that opposes the flow of current. The unit of measurement for inductance is the henry (H). When current flows through a conductor, a magnetic field is created around the conductor. This magnetic field induces an electromotive force (EMF) in the conductor that opposes the flow of current. The larger the inductance, the greater opposition to current flow.

The symbol for inductance is “L”. Inductance can be found in many devices and circuits, including inductors, transformers, and solenoids. Inductors are used to store energy in a magnetic field and to create impedance in AC circuits. Transformers are used to change voltage levels in AC circuits while maintaining a constant frequency. Solenoids are used to convert electrical energy into mechanical energy.
