Induction

If a changing magnetic field acts on an electrical conductor, an electric current is induced in the conductor, which in turn leads to a voltage when the circuit is open. The process is called electromagnetic induction. It determines the functional principle of many electrical devices: dynamo, transformer, electromagnetic oscillating circuit, induction cooker, eddy current brake etc.
