Patient discussion about inductance

Q. can smoking induce acidity on many ocassions i have felt discomfort similar to when i have acidity, but the problem goes away as soon as i stop smoking for a day or two??

A. I would like to add ther is a condition in respiratory medicine called respiratory acidosis,smoking can cause this state,your lungs can cause this state.Im not sure but this may also be one of your problems.--------mrfoot56

Q. Is it possible for exercise induced asthma patient to exercise? After several times I felt I couldn’t breathe after running and swimming, I was diagnosed with Exercise induced asthma. I tried to resume my regular exercise, but after I developed shortness of breath couple of times I stopped again. Should I attempt exercise again? How can I exercise without having another attack of asthma?

A. People can often prevent symptoms by taking medication prior to exercising. The type of medication used depends on several factors. For example, people with hay fever might take an antihistamine tablet before exercise.

For people with asthma, an inhaler can be used before exercise to prevent asthma problems. Your physician can recommend the best medication for you to use before exercise.

If you have dust mite allergy, you may want to exercise outdoors to avoid breathing indoor dust. If you are allergic to grasses and weeds, you may want to exercise in an indoor location during certain seasons.

Exercising should be avoided in areas where there are large amounts of chemicals. For example, you should not exercise outdoors near heavy traffic areas with high levels exhaust fumes from cars and trucks. Indoor areas with irritating odors or fumes, also, should be avoided.

Q. Does fish-oil helps exercise induced asthma? I was diagnosed with exercise induced asthma a couple of year ago, and since then had better and worse times with my asthma, although the treatment I get. I read in a newspaper that fish oil can help exercise induced asthma- is that true? Do I have to eat fish-oil specifically or can I eat fish instead (I really, really, hate fish-oil…)?

A. I take 6, 1000mg softgels/day. It helps my asthma, arthritis and has lowered my closterol. Started with 10 and worked down to 6, which seems to work best, though sometimes I need the extra.

The proposed technique is used to calculate the inductances of a three-phase squirrel cage induction machine under different misalignment conditions.
Abstract: This paper describes a possibility for estimation of the rotor position in low speed of interior permanent synchronous motor (IPMSM) The IPMSM has salient rotor, this means the stator inductance changes depending on the current position of the rotor, so information about rotor position is contained in changes of stator inductance.
This means that the coil inductance will be smaller.
The physical construction of a capacitor introduces a series resistance, specified as effective series resistance (ESR), and a series inductance, specified as effective series inductance (ESL).
Raising inductance of fixture signal wires can effectively reduce ground bounce, providing that ground path inductance is kept low.
The overall S-parameters of the grounded MMIC include the effective lead and via inductances. By treating the active device and the via/lead inductances as two, two-port networks connected in series, the overall S-parameters can be obtained, as shown in Figure 2.

Supply voltages (root mean square-RMS), phase differences, magnetizing currents and magnetizing inductances are measured and given in Table II.
Therefore, the mutual inductance between the two parallel loops is finally obtained as a sum of the mutual inductances of the parallel conductors where the terms [M.sub.ij'] represent mutual inductances between two parallel rectilinear conductors with the same dimensions, and the terms [M.sub.Gij'] represent the mutual inductances between two parallel rectilinear conductors with different dimensions.
