This paper is description of a new variable inductor with sinusoidal output. The variable inductor is constructed with a pair of orthogonal-cores. The secondary ac current is easily controlled by the primary dc current and the secondary current is almost sinusoidal in a wide control region. A prototype circuit for reactive power compensation using the new variable inductor is presented in this paper.
