Indcutor equation

U = L dI/dt


As the current increases, the energy is stored in inductor in form of magnetic field. This energy is then returned when current is falling.



XL = 2 π f L


Inductive reactance is strongly frequency dependent. For DC, inductor is short-circuit. The higher the signal frequency, the more inductor behaves as open circuit.
