Magnetic Circuits Summary
Simple magnetic circuit magnetic flux (F) is proportional to the
magnetomotive force (Fm) and indirectly proportional to the reluctance (R)
in a circuit.
A BH magnetization curve shows how much magnetic flux density (B)
results from increasing magnetic flux intensity. The "knee" identifies the
point where increasing flux intensity (H) results in a minimal increase in
flux density (B).
Hysteresis losses are caused by reversing current direction thousands of
times in a coil.
Faradays Law of Induced Voltage depends on the number of turns of a coil
and how fast the conductor cuts across the magnetic lines of force or flux.
Lenzs Law states that an induced voltage will have a polarity that will
oppose the magnetic field that caused the induced voltage.
