- Coupled Inductor
Inductors are broadly classified into two types according to their function that is to control signals and to store electrical energy. In simple terms, an inductor is a coil modern electrical component that consists of an insulated wire wound into a coil. Two or more windings are present in a common core in the case of a coupled inductor. Various types of inductors like toroidal inductors, laminated core inductors iron core inductors are manufactured by Shah electronics. In an AC circuit inductors act like a resistor, merely registering and changing the frequency. Coupled inductors are used in DC to DC converters by transmitting energy from one winding to the other. There is a widespread demand for coupled inductors as they are used in literally every electronic gadget. One important piece of information is that inductors do not work in DC. The coupled inductor stores electrical energy in the form of magnetic energy and does not allow ac2 to pass through it. Current can easily be passed through DC. As current flows through a conductor, the magnetic field is established. Current in the steady-state will induce a steady magnetic field and a time-varying current will induce varying magnetic fields like in the case of a coupled inductor. This is the working principle of a coupled inductor.
