Electrical Symbols, Electrical Diagram Symbols

Drawing electrical circuit diagrams, you will need to represent various electrical and electronic devices (such as batteries, wires, resistors, and transistors) as pictograms called electrical symbols.

Traditionally these symbols may vary from country to country, but today they are standardized internationally to a large extent.

How to create Electrical Diagram using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM. Depending on type of electrical diagram it require variations of Electrical Symbols set. Most of symbols located in the libraries of Electrical Engineering Solution - electrical diagram symbols from the Industrial Engineering Area at the ConceptDraw Solution Park.

    Electrical Symbols — Inductors →

    An inductor, also called a coil or reactor, is a passive two-terminal electrical component which resists changes in electric current passing through it. It consists of a conductor such as a wire, usually wound into a coil. Energy is stored in a magnetic field in the coil as long as current flows. When the current flowing through an inductor changes, the time-varying magnetic field induces a voltage in the conductor, according to Faraday’s law of electromagnetic induction. 26 libraries of the Electrical Engineering Solution of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM make your electrical diagramming simple, efficient, and effective. You can simply and quickly drop the ready-to-use objects from libraries into your document to create the electrical diagram.Electrical Symbols — Inductors *
