What is the unit of impedence?

Impedance "Z" is measured in Ohms, same as resistance. The only difference is that this form of resistance is frequency dependent where induction or capacitances are involved. (MORE)

What is an impedance relay?

Impedance relays are used whenever over-current relays do not provide adequate protection. They function even if the short circuit current is relatively low. The speed of oper (MORE)

What is impedance matching?
