- that property of a circuit by which a change in current induces, by electromagnetic induction, an electromotive force. Symbol: LCompare inductive coupling, mutual inductance, self-inductance.
- inductor(def 1).
- Also called: induction the property of an electric circuit as a result of which an electromotive force is created by a change of current in the same circuit (self-inductance) or in a neighbouring circuit (mutual inductance). It is usually measured in henriesSymbol: L See also self-inductance, mutual inductance
- another name for inductor
- A measure of the reaction of electrical components (especially coils) to changes in current flow by creating a magnetic field and inducing a voltage. Its unit is the henry.
