Basics of Inductance

Posted by Bill Dull | June 17, 2024 | 0 Comments

Joseph Henry and Michael Faraday, working separately and on different continents (Henry in America, Faraday in England), simultaneously discovered the principle of electromagnetic inductance, the ability of an electrical conductor to generate electromotive force when the current running through it is changed, in the 1830s.

Basics of Inductors

Posted by Bill Dull | March 21, 2024 | 0 Comments

Inductors are used across many industries to store energy, regulate the flow of current, and create impedance. Circuits require different types of inductors as well as core and winding styles to perform optimally in a given application. Understanding inductor properties is the best way to determine which materials and shapes are best suited for your custom needs. This blog post will discuss the [...]

How Losses Affect Your Transformers’ Performance

Posted by Bill Dull | February 27, 2024 | 0 Comments

Transformers experience losses due to the electrical current flowing through the coils and the alternating magnetic field in the core. The losses associated with the coils are known as conduction losses, while the losses arising in the core are referred to as core losses. Conduction losses occur due to the resistance of the coil wire, causing some of the electrical energy to convert into heat [...]

10 Factors to Consider When Specifying a Custom Power Inductor

Posted by Bill Dull | August 30, 2021 | 0 Comments

Power inductors can be used to filter the current or convert the Voltage and current to a different Voltage and current. Applications range from small electrical appliances to large power grid systems. Inductors consist of wound conductive metal coils that generate a magnetic field when electricity flows through them. Inductors are essential in any application that needs to carefully control [...]

Chokes vs. Inductors: What's the Difference?

Posted by Bill Dull | February 19, 2021 | 0 Comments

Numerous technologies rely on chokes or inductors to deliver, alter, and filter electrical current. Understanding the difference between chokes and inductors is essential when designing devices and machinery that rely on electrical power. These electrical components each suit specific applications.
