Eddy current testing principle


What is eddy current?

A current induced in a conductor when subject to a varying magnetic field.Such currents are a source of energy dissipation (eddy current loss) in alternating current machinery.The reaction between the eddy currents in a moving conductor and the magnetic in which it is moving is such as to retard the motion.This property of eddy currents is sometimes used to produce electromagnetic damping.
