All real feomponents, including capacitors and resistors, havea certain inductance, Recall that a wireswound tesistr is very similar tothe solenoid described above, The inductance i always the ri of the magic fx linkage (7) to the eurvent uate (2.10) 7 An ideal circuit component that contains ony inductance is called an inductor, ne fiom equation 3.8 we see that Ube relationship of voltage across the terminals of an inductor tothe curren through ii given by vat 50 reamatant crews Fig. 28. Syl fr el induct) The symbol for an ideal induct ae shown in igre 3.6 ike the capacitor, an deal inductor has several curious properties. Ifa constant ‘current passes through te inductor, equation 8.11 says that the voltage it neo. In dc circuit, an inductor behaves ikea short cect On the ther hand, i Fis to be finite, the eurrene cannot change abruptly. For transients, the inductor thus behaves lke a earent source. Like eapaite, an inductor cannot disiate energy, but ca ‘only store tin the magaetic Red. The energy sored in an inductor is wa five To conserve space, induct are often wound om a toroidal iron core Ion has relative permeability, 1,00 theorer of 1000.

In fact, a sulficenly high magnetic feds, the core wil saturate and its relative pereatility will drop to a valve nea unity. No only that, but the magnetic ld the iron depends nthe past history of the current inthe winding. This property of remanence is ential in permanent magnet, bu in am inductor it gives sie ‘6dtinal lose, called hysteresis looses, Variable inductors ate wally made in the form of a short solenoid with a pondered iron or fest slg that ca be stemed into or out the form on which the «cil wound.
