Answer The unit of measurement for impedance is the ohm.

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.… Z = sqr(R2+X2) and in its complex from Z = R +jX where j = sqr(-1). The classical apparent power (V x I) will not apply as well as it apply in DC circuits. It would rather be in the form of P = Power Factor x V x I where Power Factor is PF= cos (angle) and angle = tan-1(X/R) since there is a phase shift between voltage and current due to the reactance (X) of the load, for inductive reactance the current lag, for capacitive reactances the current lead. I only use X as a general form of reactance, but normally reactance will either be: XL = 2 x Pi x f x L for inductive components or Xc = 1 / (2 x Pi x f x C) for capacitive components X, XL or Xc is also in ohms Impedance is Z and measured in Ohms and the same series - parallel laws apply as with resistances. When do you need to worry about impedance? when you work with alternating currents and not DC. When there are possible induction or capacitance involved which is the case most of the time. (MORE)

In Grammar

"Impede" as a noun would be an "impedance." This is wrong. "Impedance" is a term relating to electrical conductance/resistance. The noun of "impede" is "impediment".

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…ation is independent of current magnitude. Impedance relays monitor the impedance between the relay location and the fault. If the impedance falls within the relay setting, the relay will operate. The basic construction for impedance relays on which the principle of operation is easily explained is the balanced beam.

If you pretend that the signals in electric circuits are of the form A*exp(s*t), where A and s are constants, and t is time, then derivatives of the signal and integrations of… the signal are always just a scaled version of the signal. So, the ratio of voltage to current, when the signals are of this form, is just a (possibly complex) constant. This number is called impedance, and it depends on the value of the constant "s" in the signal. Impedance is a term used to signify a device that react to the flow of electrons in a negative way. It can be of complex passive devices or active devices. Impedance (symbol: Z), expressed in ohms, is the opposition to the flow of alternating current by a resistive-reactive load. It is the vector sum of resistance and reactance. (MORE)
