- n. Induction in a circuit caused by changes in the circuit itself.

- n. Induction in a circuit due to the action of one portion of a current upon an adjacent portion during periods of varying current strength. The nature of the induction is such as to oppose the action which produces it.
from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. See induction.

Consider trying self-induction methods that may encourage labor to begin.
The Daily Hazel important and legal self-induction
In Louie's case, hysteresis -- the self-induction that makes it impossible to turn off current in a conductor instantaneously -- is a bit longer, in terms of his mental process, than the chemical delay was in his old body.
When this takes place in another, galvanically separated coil, this is called mutual induction; when it takes place in the same coil, it is called self-induction.
At the instant of switching off (time t2), the current passing through the coil is not immediately interrupted because self-induction opposes any current change.
In which way are self-induction and mutual induction physically related?
The proportionality factor in mutual induction is called mutual inductance M, that in self-induction is called inductance L.
This process of production of electromotive force in the turns of the coil generating the field is called self-induction.
The maximum current limited by R cannot flow immediately because self-induction counteracts any current change.
A self-induction voltage U10 arises in the input winding.
