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

(ɪnˈdʌk təns)

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

By following the procedures described in section III for increasing values of stator and field currents we obtain the longitudinal magnetization characteristic, the synchronous magnetization inductances and the differential magnetization inductances of the SG.
However, beyond 2.5 GHz, the inductors experience self-resonance and their inductances increase differently over frequency, making fair performance comparisons of identical inductance extremely difficult and complicated at high frequencies.
An essential part of this theory is the calculation of machine inductances. These inductances are calculated using winding function and other equations within the theory.
[u.sub.d], [u.sub.q] are the d, q axis voltages, [i.sub.d], [i.sub.q] are the d, q axis stator currents, [L.sub.d], [L.sub.q] are the d,q axis inductances, [[PSI].sub.d], [[PSI].sub.q] are the d,q axis stator flux linkages, R is stator resistance and [[omega].sub.s] is synchronous frequency.
On the other hand, the highest fundamental test frequency is 10 kHz used to measure inductances less than 1 mH.
Because capacitances in parallel sum and inductances in parallel decrease, it can be beneficial to place two smaller capacitors of identical value in parallel in the place of a single larger capacitor.
The current's rise time is limited by the path inductances, Lrcv and Lgnd.
The CWS-2065 Series inductor uses low loss planar flat helix winding to reduce the DCR and parasitic inductances.
Consequently, the manufacturer's S-parameters are modified by the positive feedback produced by the lead and via inductances that could make the amplifier potentially unstable.
If the motor-circuit inductances and resistances are known, the resultant motor terminal voltage can be calculated where the motor terminal voltage is equal to motor speed.
At the higher frequencies, iron losses on the core are accelerated due to increased variations of magnetic fluxes where shunt inductances are dominant in the equivalent circuit.
