Explanation some technical terms for magnetic component(7)

Rated current
The level of continuous DC current that can be passed through the inductor, this DC current level is based on a maximum temperature rise of the inductor at the maximum rated ambient temperature, the rated current is related to the inductor's ability to minimize the power losses in the winding by having a low DC resistance, it is also related to the inductor's ability to this power lost in the winding, thus, the rated current can be increased by reducing the DC resistance or increasing the inductor size, for low frequency current waveforms, the RMS current can be substitued for the DC rated current, the rated current is not related to the magnetic properties of the inductor.​
