What can you tell me about sample current and voltage dependency?
Inductors with cores exhibit current dependency. Air-core inductors do not exhibit current dependency. An LCR meter’s V and CV (constant-voltage) modes can be used to measure samples that exhibit voltage dependency (ceramic capacitors, etc.). Select CV mode when you do not wish to change the voltage applied to both ends of the sample. To the extent that the voltage value is monitored and controlled with feedback, CV mode results in longer measurement times than V mode.
