Technical article: what is induction technology and what are its uses? downloadweblink

Gill Research & DevelopmentMon, 15 Sep 2014

Induction is a process by which a magnetised or electrically charged object produces magnetism, an electric charge or an electro-motive force, in another object without being in contact with it. These processes are called magnetic induction when magnetism is produced, electrostatic induction when an electric charge is produced and electromagnetic induction when an electric voltage is produced. This article from Gill Research & Development discusses each of these.
