Reluctance vs Inductance - What's the difference?

reluctance | inductance |


As nouns the difference between reluctance and inductance

is that reluctance is unwillingness to do something while inductance is the property of an electric circuit by which a voltage is induced in it by a changing magnetic field.

reluctance

English

Noun

  • Unwillingness to do something.
  • Hesitancy in taking some action.
  • (physics) That property of a magnetic circuit analogous to resistance in an electric circuit.
  • Derived terms

    * reluctance motor

    inductance

    English

    Noun

    (wikipedia inductance)
  • The property of an electric circuit by which a voltage is induced in it by a changing magnetic field.
  • :The power cable itself has enough inductance to disrupt the digital signal of the video output cable, due to poor shielding.
  • The quantity of the resulting electromagnetic flux divided by the current that produces it, measured in henries (SI symbol: H .)
  • :What is the inductance of that power supply's main inductor?
  • Derived terms

    *self-inductance *mutual inductance *leakage inductance
