INDUCED VOLTAGE

See INDUCED ELECTROMOTIVE FORCE [1].

INDUCED-CHANNEL MOSFET

A MOSFET in which there is no actual channel between the source and the drain. This MOSFET is constructed by making the channel of the same type of material as the substrate [7].


INDUCTANCE

The property of a circuit that tends to oppose a change in the existing current flow. The symbol for inductance is L [2] [7].


INDUCTANCE BRIDGE

An ac bridge circuit used to measure an unknown value of inductance [16].

INDUCTION

The act or process of producing voltage and current by the relative motion of a magnetic field across a conductor [1].


INDUCTION FIELD

The electromagnetic field that is produced about an antenna when current and
voltage are present on the same antenna [10].


INDUCTION LOSSES

The losses that occur when the electromagnetic field around a conductor cuts
through nearby metallic objects and induces a current into that object [10].


INDUCTION MOTOR

A simple, rugged, ac motor with desirable characteristics. The rotor is energized by transformer action (induction) from the stator. Induction motors are used more than any other type [5].


INDUCTIVE COUPLING

Coupling of two coils by means of magnetic lines of force. In transformers,
coupling applied through magnetic lines of force between the primary and secondary windings [2].


INDUCTIVE REACTANCE

The opposition to the flow of an alternating current caused by the inductance of a circuit, expressed in ohms. Identified by the symbol X L [2] [9].
