What value of inductance corresponds to an open circuit, assuming zero initial current? Explain your answer. Repeat for a short circuit.
For open circuit, i = 0. Since initial current is 0, we can say di/dt = 0 will satisfy the condition. di/dt = v/L = 0. L is infinte. For short circuit, v = 0. v = L di/dt = 0. L =0.
