Unit kH
Name kilohenry
Category Inductance
Details In the field of inductance, the kilohenry (kH) is a unit of measurement used to express the inductance of an electrical component, such as an inductor or a transformer. It is a derived unit in the International System of Units (SI) and is equivalent to 1,000 henries (H).

Inductance is a property of an electrical component that opposes the change in current flowing through it. When a varying current passes through an inductor, it generates an electromotive force (EMF) that opposes this change in current, creating an induced voltage. The ability of an inductor to create this induced voltage is described by its inductance.

1 kH (kilohenry) is equal to 1,000 H (henries), which means an electrical component with an inductance of 1 kH has the ability to generate 1,000 volts across it when the current through it changes at a rate of 1 ampere per second. This unit is mainly used for inductors or transformers that have a relatively high inductance value.
