An inductor is passive component that stores energy in the form of a magnetic field when an electric current passes through it. It’s constructed by wounding wire around a core made of magnetic or non-magnetic material. The primary characteristic of an inductor is its inductance (L), which is a measure of its ability to store energy in the magnetic field.

When current flows through the coil of an inductor, a magnetic field is generated around the coil. The magnetic field stores energy, and when the current through the inductor changes, the magnetic field collapses, releasing the stored energy back into the circuit. This property of an inductor makes it different from capacitors, which store energy in an electric field.

There are many reasons why inductors are used in a electronic circuit :

  • Filtering and Signal Processing
  • Energy Storage
  • Inductive Load Control
  • Magnetic Coupling & Transformers
  • Chokes and Inductive Reactors
  • Inductive Sensing and Detection
  • Resonant Circuits
  • Energy Conversion
  • Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) Suppression

To calculate the series inductance, input the number of inductors and their respective inductance values, and the calculator will provide you with the total inductance

Note : Don’t end with comma ( , )

Enter Inductance of All Inductors value in H (E.g: 1,3,2,6,8,9,10,5)


\[ L = L_1 + L_2 + L_3 + L_4 + . . . \]

where :

  • L=Total Inductance
  • L1 ,L2,L3…=Each Inductance Value
