INDUCTOR

Also called a reactor or line reactor. A device that stores electrical current as a magnetic field. Inductors resist a change in current. Inductors are used to create system impedance by resisting a sudden change in current with the magnetic field. The unit used to measure inductors is “henry.” A henry, abbreviated “H”, is a very large value, so the more common unit is “milli” (0.001 H) or mH. (see: Capacitor; Inductive Load; Magnetic Field; Real Power; Reactive Power; Leading; Lagging.)
