8.1 Choke inductor characteristics and uses

Description

March 26, 2021
In this lecture, we will learn:
  • A choke inductor passes DC current and mostly blocks ac current.
  • Cores are limited by saturation, not core loss; windings tend to be dominated by DC conduction loss.
  • Choke inductors are used in a variety of power converters and auxiliary circuits, but differ in design from AC inductors and transformers.
