Inductor[edit]

This device generates a magnetic field as current passes through it similar to the magnetic field of a magnet. An inductor stores electrical energy in the form of a magnetic field.

Inductor's Symbol[edit]

The symbol for inductance is L and is measured in Henry which has the symbol H.

Inductor's Construction[edit]

An inductor is a device made from a wire conductor with several turns that has the dimensiion permability, length of inductor, and number of turns and inversely proportional to cross-sectional area.

= μN^2

Characteristics[edit]

Inductance[edit]

Inductance is the ability to generartes Magnetic Field B for a given Current

Magnetic Field[edit]

When a voltage is applied across the inductor, current generates Electric Field . Change of Electric Field in the turns generates Magnetic Field perpendicular to Electric Field

B = I L

Voltage[edit]

Current[edit]

Reactance[edit]

Reactance is defined as the ratio of Voltage over current

Impedance[edit]

Impedance is defined as the sum of Reactance and Resistance of Inductor . Since all conductor has Resistance

Frequency Respond[edit]

Inductor is a device depends on frequency

  • , Inductor Closed circuit, I ≠ 0
  • , Inductor Opened circuit, I = 0
,
Z_L = [(RL]⅓</math> ,

With the value of I at three frequency points ω = 0, , 1 / CRC I - f curve can be drawn to give a picture of current in the inductor over time

Phase Angle[edit]

When a Voltage is applied across inductor , current generates magnetic field . Change in curent generate change in magnetic field which generate voltage across inductor . Therefore, current will lead voltage

For ideal losses inductor which has no internal resistance, Current will lead Voltage an angle 90 . For Non - Ideal inductor which has an internal resistance, Current will lead Voltage an angle θ

Tanθ = = 2π f

Phase angle relates to time frequecy or time and the value of R and L . When there is a change in phase angle Time and frequency also change

Induced Voltage[edit]

Induced Voltage is defined as the voltage of the turns which oppose the current flow
