  Inductor
The resistance of the rheostat and the inductance of the inductor are capable to be varied by dragging their sliders.
The blue one represents the current in the circuit while the transient red one is the induced current caused by the inductor.
The polarities of the inductor are also shown in the conventional colors: red(+), fl(-).

  Inductor physics
Well the philosophy behind the inductor is that flux lines can generate voltage, this is used to alter waveforms in circuits where there is a presents of ripple current.
When current has reached its peak the inductor stops working until there is a disruption in current flow like in the case of ripple current or in the case of audio applications or power supplies.
To flatten down the waveform you would use a device related to the inductor, known as the capacitor which is basically an inefficient battery that only holds a charge for fractions of a second but is perfect in an alternating DC circuit.

  Inductor Basics
In an ideal inductor, the current lags behind the voltage by 90° or π/2 radians, but since physical inductors are made from wire that has resistance, a combination resistive-inductive circuit results causing the Q of the tank to be lower.
The inductor is energized for a specific fraction of the regulator's switching frequency, and de-energized for the remainder of the cycle.
As inductors tend to be larger and heavier than other components, their use has been reduced in modern equipment; solid state switching power supplies eliminate large transformers, for instance, and circuits are designed to use only small inductors, if any; larger values are simulated by use of gyrator circuits.

 Inductor Summary
An inductor is a passive electrical device employed in electrical circuits for its property of inductance.
An inductor is usually constructed as a coil of conducting material, typically copper wire, wrapped around a core either of air or of ferromagnetic material.
The quality factor (or Q) of an inductor is the ratio of its inductance to its resistance at a given frequency, and is a measure of its efficiency.

 Class Definition for Class 336 - INDUCTOR DEVICES
Adjustable inductor devices wherein the inductance variation is attained by changing the physical shape of either the coil or core or both, usually by physically displacing portions of the coil or core relative to other portions of the coil or core respectively, by bending, twisting or stretching.
Adjustable inductor devices in which the inductance varying element is adjusted in response to the magnetic force existing between the magnetic elements (e.g., between the core and coil or between coils) of the inductor device.
Subject matter in which the inductor device has a circumambient liquid or gaseous insulating medium in contact with its coil or core and wherein means, such as a pump or fan, is included to force the medium to circulate for the purpose of effecting a heat exchange between the medium and the inductor device.

 FEEE - Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering and Electronics: Magnetic fields and inductance
Although a simple coil shape is the generic symbol for any inductor, inductors with cores are sometimes distinguished by the addition of parallel lines to the axis of the coil.
When an inductor is faced with an increasing current, it acts as a load: dropping voltage as it absorbs energy (negative on the current entry side and positive on the current exit side, like a resistor).
When an inductor is faced with a decreasing current, it acts as a source: creating voltage as it releases stored energy (positive on the current entry side and negative on the current exit side, like a battery).

  PARC High-Q Integrated Inductor Coil Solutions
High-quality, low-loss inductors are the last remaining components still not successfully integrated on ICs (integrated circuits).
Substrate material beneath inductor is removed or coils are suspended—this eliminates eddy currents but does not address skin-effect losses, wasted wafer space, or fragility of suspended coils.
PARC’s StressedMetal™ on-chip, out-of-plane inductor coils achieve higher Qs partly because the coil axis is parallel to the substrate plane.

 RFC - Inductor
Inductors are commonly used for filtering, amplifying, or for creating resonant circuits used in radio-frequency applications.
The layout of a 10nH inductor is typically a square spiral, since standard CMOS processes constrain all angles to be 90° (Figure 12-3).
The variation of the resonant frequency with the capacitor and inductor is proposed in figure 12-8.

 AC Inductor Circuits - Reactance And Impedance - Inductors
It means that the inductor is releasing power back to the circuit, while a positive power means that it is absorbing power from the circuit.
What this means in a practical sense is that the reactance of an inductor dissipates a net energy of zero, quite unlike the resistance of a resistor, which dissipates energy in the form of heat.
An inductor's opposition to change in current translates to an opposition to alternating current in general, which is by definition always changing in instantaneous magnitude and direction.

 inductor. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05   (Site not responding. Last check: )
An inductor is usually connected into a circuit in order to raise the inductance to a desired value.
Since inductance is a property that varies with frequency, inductors range from a single loop in a length of wire (used at ultrahigh frequencies), through spirals in the copper coating of an etched circuit board (used at very high frequencies), to large coils of insulated wire wound onto iron or ferrite cores.
For radio use, inductors often have air cores to avoid the losses caused by magnetic hysteresis and by eddy currents that occur when solid cores are used.

 Guide to Selecting Inductors for Switching Regulators   (Site not responding. Last check: )
is the voltage across the inductor, di is the ripple current, and dt is the duration for which the voltage is applied.
Irms is normally specified as the dc current that produces an inductor temperature rise of 40°C. Isat is the peak current that produces a specific roll off in inductance —; specified as a percentage reduction from the open circuit value and can vary from 5% to 50%.
The two main issues with this area of inductor selection are calculating the core loss and the required de-rating of Irms to keep the temperature rise down to an acceptable level.

 The Inductor as a Transmission Line
The time taken for the energy leaving the inductor to rise to equal the amount entering is dependent on the mismatch between the characteristic impedances and also the time delay involved in traversing the device.
The single turn inductor is a transmission line with an increase in characteristic impedance followed by a short circuit, discussed in the previous chapter.
A computer iteration of the two-turn inductor was written by Michael S. Gibson, and the results confirmed that the two-turn inductor had the expected exponential waveform with four times the time constant for the one-turn inductor.
