e·lec·tro·mag·net·ic in·duc·tion

generation of an electrical current in a conductor when it is moved across a magnetic field.

electromagnetic induction

Etymology: Gk, elektron + magnes, lodestone; L, inducere, to bring in
the production of electric current in a circuit when it is passed through a changing magnetic field.

electromagnetic induction

Generation of an electromotive force in an insulated conductor moving in an electromagnetic field or in a fixed conductor in a moving magnetic field.

In its turn, the induced current measured by the induction sensor should give the same value as in the case of the contact measurement method.
Induced current is applied by superimposed harmonic current of the stator.

In contrast to the numerical method, the induced current Js on the rough surface are not based on the solution of a system of linear equations, they are determined by the tapered wave and the scattering field contributed by the [J.
This can be explained by the fact that induced current densities are higher also near the electrodes as shown in Fig.
When the magnet achieves terminal speed, the rate at which work is done by gravity on the magnet equals the rate of joule heat production by induced currents in the tube.
It is assumed that the magnetic field produced by the induced currents in the conducting plate do not interfere with the field set up by the conductors.
Large power transformers at substations, which are grounded to the Earth, would be affected by geomagnetically induced current as a result of such a storm and fail.
The induced current is directly proportional to the rate of change of the field in the active line.
Charge density of attrited particles was higher than that of intact ones, but induced current showed a reverse trend.
Just as a trained ear can pick up a familiar voice in a crowd, they suggest, so a cell might respond to an induced current as a signal.
This design causes the induced current to loop around each segment and creates the required magnetic field in the metallic charge.
