An inductor is formed by a wire wound in a coil, such as an electromagnet or transformer. An electrical inductor stores energy in the magnetic field formed when current flow through the coil. This energy is released when the current decreases and the magnetic field collapses. The effects of inductances are often seen at the highest frequencies. The impedance of an inductor increases with frequency. If the amount of current flowing through a circuit of an inductor could be measured, then the inductor value could be caluculated.
