In electronics, Anderson's bridge is a bridge circuit used to measure the self-inductance of the coil. It enables measurement of inductance by utilizing other circuit components like resistors and capacitors.[1] Anderson's bridge was invented by Alexander Anderson in 1891.[2] He modified Maxwell's inductance capacitance bridge so that it gives very accurate measurement of self-inductance.[3]
