***Updated for 2019***

This module helps engineers to understand that when a contact opens the current can’t change instantly because of the inductance in the circuit

– inductive energy is stored in any conductor (e.g. mains supply distribution and long DC cables)

– also stored in all coils and windings (solenoids, transformers, motor windings, etc.)

 The resulting voltage flyback breaks down the contact’s air gap while it tries to maintain the current flow. The frequency spectrum of arcs and sparks is truly ‘DC - daylight’ and this wide spectrum is radiated (or picked-up) by all conductors depending on their length and resonant frequencies.
