inductance

a) The property of an electric circuit by which a voltage is induced in it by a changing magnetic field.

The power cable itself has enough inductance to disrupt the digital signal of the video output cable, due to poor shielding.

b) The quantity of the resulting electromagnetic flux divided by the current that produces it, measured in henries (SI symbol: H.)

What is the inductance of that power supplys main inductor?
