The relationship of current, magnetism, and motion is important to the topic of inductance. Inductance is the property of an electric circuit component that opposes any change in electric current. It is a measure of the amount of magnetic flux produced for a given electric current and is designated by letter “L”. An inductor is a component designed to produce a specific inductance i.e. having no resistance or capacitance. An inductor, when subjected to an increasing electrical current flow, generates a back voltage that opposes this current.


Inductance quantifies how much energy an inductor can store and is expressed in henrys (h). An inductor consists of at least one winding of wire, but it usually has more. Examples of inductors or devices having inductance are transformers, chokes, coils relays and motors.


This online PDH course is applicable to electrical engineers, design and construction personnel, technical staff and facility personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding of inductance.


In this course, you need to review Chapter 2 of Module 2 titled “Inductance” of the Naval Education and Training Materials (NAVEDTRA 14174), Electricity and Electronic Training Series, provided below. Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of fifteen (15) questions to earn 3 PDH credits. The quiz will be based on Chapter 2 of Module 2 of this NAVEDTRA publication.


Learning Objectives

This continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Define the term "inductance”, "induced emf" and "counter emf"
  • State Lenz's law
  • List five factors that affect the inductance of a coil and state how various physical changes in these factors affect inductance
  • State the principles and sequences involved in the buildup and decay of current in an LR series circuit
  • State the three types of power loss in an inductor
  • Define the term "mutual inductance” and “coefficient of coupling”
  • Given the inductance values of and the coefficient of coupling between two series-connected inductors, solve for mutual inductance, M
  • Write the formula for the "total inductance" of two inductors connected in series-opposing
  • Given the inductance values of and the mutual inductance value between two coils connected in series-aiding, solve for their combined inductance, LT
