  • n. A measure of the capacity for magnetic inductance.
  • n. The susceptibility to a process of induction (various senses).

from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia

  • n. The power or capacity for induction; specifically, a measure or coefficient of induction, as of magnetic induction; specific inductive capacity.

  • The inductivity reactance XL can approximately be calculated as.

    1. Swer, a low cost rural distribution system using single wire earth return.

  • The easiest way to ensure a good pf is to compensate each disturbance where it occurs e.g. to correct every inductivity on the spot, for instance by connecting the correct compensation capacitor to the same power switch, socket etc.

    1. Phasor diagram

  • Starter ignition sets, in their essence, consist of a special glow starter with a current-limiting capacitor and, perhaps, a protective resistor connected in series, by which - including the inductivity of the ballast - the required glitches from 1.5 to 2.5 kV are generated in the form of irregular pulses.

    6. Operating Components for Discharge Lamps

  • Long ago a theory of residual charge was given by Maxwell, based on the consideration of a laminated dielectric, the inductivity and resistance of which varied from layer to layer.

  • The root cause behind Best Buy's degradation is that the high inductivity of the company prevented it from rapidly responding to the rise of online merchants and Wal-Mart's emphasis on electronics. News

  • Readers will be pleased to know that the European supplier, Murrelektronik, is making available these MEF mains suppression filters (at a price), to provide (in summary): ...reduced emitted interference and improved immunity from internal and external interference on mains and power-supply cable to enable conformity with Class B interference emission limits defined in EN 55022 and 55011, so offering high energy absorption and wide-band damping behaviour up to 30Hz, designed to suppress the essentially symmetrical interference (differential mode) that occurs in conventional motor drives and between the lines in the low frequency range because of inductivity without interference suppression.
