1011303INDUCTORS AND INDUCTANCE
Inductors. An inductor is a circuit element whose behavior is described by the fact that it stores electromagnetic energy in its magnetic field. This feature gives it many interesting and valuable characteristics. In its most elementary form, an inductor is formed by winding a coil of wire, often copper, around a form that may or may not contain ferromagnetic materials. In this section, the behavior of the device at its terminal is discussed. Later, in the sections, on magnetic circuits, the device itself will be discussed. A picture of an inductor may be seen in
