AL value

AL, AL value, inductance factor, inductance per turn, inductance per square turn - reciprocal of magnetic reluctance (permeance), characteristic for a given magnetic core (type, size, air gap, etc.), often provided by the manufacturer. The AL value is commonly used in the design of electronic transformers based on ferrite cores, for which the value is often given in nanohenries.
