nonlinear inductance

nonlinear inductance

[′nän‚lin·ē·ər in′dək·təns]
(electricity)
The behavior of an inductor for which the voltage drop across the inductor is not proportional to the rate of change of current, such as when the inductor has a core of magnetic material in which magnetic induction is not proportional to magnetic field strength.

It should be noted that oscillatory processes in circuits with steel require special attention in investigations of modes of main electrical networks, as linear resonances on higher harmonic components, the source of which is nonlinear inductance, and nonlinear resonances, in which this inductance is part of the resonance circuit, are possible [2, 5, 6].
They also possess unique nonlinear inductance properties that make them useful as active microwave devices.
The nonlinear inductance can be cast in the form of a constant term plus a cosine term
