# Inductance

An inductor is a device for storing energy in a magnetic field.an inductor is generally called as inductance.

Self induction :  The phenomena of production of induced emf in a circuit due to change in current flowing in its own, is called self – induction.

Coefficient of self induction ) = LI

Mutual induction: The phenomena of production of induced emf in a circuit due to the change in magnetic flux in its neighboring circuit is called mutual induction.

Coefficient of mutual induction (Φ) = MI

1. By Faraday's second law, induced emf e = -N\frac{d \phi}{dt}, which gives e = -L \frac{di}{dt}; if \frac{di}{dt} = 1 amp/sec then |e| = L.

2. According to Faraday's second law emf induce in secondary is e_{2} = - N_{2} \frac{d \phi_{2}}{dt}; e_{2} = -M \frac{di_{1}}{dt}

3. Relation between M, L1 and L2 : For two magnetically coupled coils M = k\sqrt{L_{1}L_{2}}

4. Series: If two coils of self-inductances L1 and L2 having mutual inductance M are in series and are far each other, so that the mutual induction between them is negligible, then net self inductance Ls = L1 + L2

5. Parallel : If two coils of self-inductances L1 and L2 having mutual inductance are connected in parallel and are far from each other, then net inductance L is \frac{1}{L_{P}} = \frac{1}{L_{1}} + \frac{1}{L_{2}}
