A direct induced current


A direct induced current
Direct current Direct current (Elec.) (a) A current flowing in one direction only; -- distinguished from {alternating current}. When steady and not pulsating a direct current is often called a {continuous current}. (b)

{A direct induced current}, or momentary current of the same direction as the inducing current, produced by stopping or removing the latter; also, a similar current produced by removal of a magnet. [Webster 1913 Suppl.]
