Induction As English scientist Michael Faraday discovered, a magnetic field exerts a force of attraction or repulsion upon the charge carriers (electrons) in the wire causing (inducing) current (electrical energy). The magnetic field can be from a natural magnet, man-made magnet, or an electromagnet. There are three configurations in which induction takes place: A steady strength, moving, magnetic field crosses a stationary wire. - Alternator. A moving wire crosses a stationary, steady strength, magnetic field. - Generator. A stationary, variable strength magnet and a stationary wire. - Wheel Speed Sensor and Reluctor.
