in·duc·tance

 (ĭn-dŭk′təns)
n.
1. The property of an electric circuit by which an electromotive force is induced in it as the result of a changing magnetic flux.
2. A circuit element, typically a conducting coil, in which electromotive force is generated by electromagnetic induction.

inductance

(ɪnˈdʌktəns)
n
1. (General Physics) 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 henries. Symbol: L See also self-inductance, mutual inductance
2. (General Physics) another name for inductor

in•duct•ance

(ɪnˈdʌk təns)

n.
1. the property of a circuit by which a change in current induces, by electromagnetic induction, an electromotive force.

in·duc·tance

(ĭn-dŭk′təns)
The property of an electric circuit that makes it possible for an electromotive force to be created in a nearby circuit by a change of current in either circuit.

To find the optimal core gap, we first measured the effect of core gap on magnetizing and leakage inductance, and then found an operating point where variations in core gap would not create large variance in the inductances.
As Figure 4 illustrates, the inductances of both the PCB trace and the FET's internal bond wires contribute to the total inductance between the HS FET source and the gate driver return path.
The equivalent Blumlein line circuit has drawn to understand the operational nature of Blumlein line arrangement whose functioning depends upon the inductance and resistance of spark gap as shown in Figure (b) which has two parts, the part of ignition system named I and the laser discharge channel portion named II having inductances L1 and L2 and resistances R1 and R2, respectively.
Magnetic saliency of the machine is defined as the difference between axial inductances [L.
Use of dedicated board capacitance materials that are very thin (>1 mil) with very high dielectric constants can also help by providing additional decoupling capacitance, as well as shrinking the loop inductances.
