I have studied that if the current reversal through an inductor is done within the time constant i.e. before it attains steady state , (AC supply) inductor does'nt get damaged...buy why so ?? As we clearly know if the direction or magnitude of current is changed within a short time , inductor burns out..!!

because during time constant interval the inductor’s magnetic field is strong enough to resist breakdown
