Definition - What does Toroid mean?
Techopedia explains Toroid
Toroids generate a magnetic field or frequency depending on the material of the ring (permeability) and the type of wire and the number of turns the wire is wound; the overall size also matters. These pulses are used as a counterbalance in order to reduce noise in an electronic system such as line filters.
Toroidal cores for transformers are gaining popularity compared to straight solenoid cores because magnetic flux leakage is minimal owing to the toroidal shape compared to the latter's straight solenoid shape. The overall functionality is simply greater inductance with minimal electromagnetic interference caused to the surrounding circuits or equipment.
