L

LC CHOKE-INPUT FILTER

This filter is used in power supplies where voltage regulation is important
and where the output current is relatively high and subject to varying load conditions [7].


LEAD

The opposite of lag. Also a WIRE or CONNECTION [2].

LEAD INDUCTANCE

The inductance of the lead wires connecting the internal components of an
electron tube [11].


LEAD SHEATH

A continuous jacket of lead molded around a single conductor or multiple conductor cable. Generally used to ensure conductors are protected from water or extensive moisture [4].


LEAD-ACID CELL

A cell in an ordinary storage battery in which electrodes are grids of lead containing an active material consisting of certain lead oxides that change in composition during charging and discharging. The electrodes or plates are immersed in an electrolyte of diluted sulfuric acid [1].


LEAKAGE CURRENT

The small amount of current that flows through the dielectric between the
conductors of a transmission line [10].


LEAKAGE FLUX

Magnetic flux lines produced by the primary winding that do not link the turns of the secondary winding [2].


LEAKAGE RESISTANCE

The electrical resistance that opposes the flow of current through the
dielectric of a capacitor. The higher the leakage resistance, the slower the capacitor discharges or leaks across the dielectric [2].


LEAST SIGNIFICANT DIGIT

The LSD is the digit whose position within a given number expression has the least weighting power [13].


LEFT-HAND RULE FOR GENERATORS

A rule or procedure used to determine the direction of current flow in a generator [2] [5].
