Explain the statement that ” In Inductive circuit, when Inductance (L) or inductive reactance (XL) increases, the circuit Current (I) decrease”

We know that, I V / R, but in inductive circuit, I V/XL

So Current in inversely proportional to the Current (in inductive circuit).

Let‘s check with an example.

Suppose, when Inductance (L) 0.02H

V 220, R 10 ?, L 0.02 H, f 50Hz.

XL 2?fL 2 x 3.1415 x 50 x 0.02 6.28 ?

Z ? (R2+XL2) ? (102 + 6.282) 11.8 ?

I V/Z 220/11.8 18.64 A

Now we increases Inductance (L) form 0.02 H to 0.04 H,

V 220, R 10 ?, L 0.04 H, f 50Hz.

XL 2?fL 2 x 3.1415 x 50 x 0.04 12.56 ?

Z ? (R2+XL2) ? (102 + 12.562) 16.05 ?

I V/Z 220 / 16.05 13.70 A

Conclusion :

We can see that, When inductance (L) was 0.02, then circuit current were 18.64 A.

But, when Circuit inductance increased from 0.02H to 0.04 H, then current decreased from13.70 A to 18.64A.

Hence proved, In inductive circuit, when inductive reactance XL increases, the circuit current decreases, and Vice Virsa.

So Current in inversely proportional to the Current (in inductive circuit).

Let‘s check with an example.

Suppose, when Inductance (L) 0.02H

V 220, R 10 ?, L 0.02 H, f 50Hz.

XL 2?fL 2 x 3.1415 x 50 x 0.02 6.28 ?

Z ? (R2+XL2) ? (102 + 6.282) 11.8 ?

I V/Z 220/11.8 18.64 A

V 220, R 10 ?, L 0.04 H, f 50Hz.

XL 2?fL 2 x 3.1415 x 50 x 0.04 12.56 ?

Z ? (R2+XL2) ? (102 + 12.562) 16.05 ?
