I only know that apparent inductance = Phi/I, incremental inductance = dPhi/dI.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Two definitions because of the non-linearity of Phi vs. I curve.

So is there anyone who can tell me when I should use incremental inductance and when apparent inductance?

Many thanks.
