Analytic expressions for the Lorentz force and torque on a line current with arbitrary orientation due to a cuboidal permanent magnet

J. M. M. Rovers; J. W. Jansen; E. A. Lomonova Digests of the 2010 14th Biennial IEEE Conference on Electromagnetic Field Computation, 2010

This paper concerns the analysis of the force and torque between a rectangular coil with arbitrary orientation and a cuboidal permanent magnet. An analytic solution for the Lorentz force and torque on a line current is presented and the results for a rectangular coil are obtained by meshing the cross-section of the coil. The method presented will be used in ...

Measurement of weight using magnetic levitation

Sagar Dutta; Sudipto Bordoloi International Conference on Circuits, Communication, Control and Computing, 2014

This paper discusses a new approach of weight measurement using magnetic levitation system. The experiment has been performed such that it levitates a ferromagnetic object at a fixed distance from the electromagnet and the current through the coil is measured at the instant the object is being levitated. This paper shows an approach to find out the relation between the ...


Double-Sided Iron-Core PMLSM Mover Teeth Arrangement Design for Reduction of Detent Force and Speed Ripple

Shi-Uk Chung; Jong-Moo Kim IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics, 2016

This paper analytically and experimentally shows effectiveness and simplicity of mover teeth arrangement design, which dramatically reduces detent force and consequently speed ripple at low speed. For this purpose, this paper describes two design steps that include the conventional magnetic circuit optimization by response surface methodology (RSM) and a slight modification of the optimized model based on the proposed mover ...


Superconducting sector magnets for a flux-coupled isochronous cyclotron stack

P. McIntyre; A. Sattarov IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity, 2003

A flux-coupled stack of 800 MeV isochronous cyclotrons is being designed as a basis for accelerator-driven thorium-cycle fission power. The sector magnet consists of a stack of independently suspended cold-iron cores (each with its superconducting coil closely coupled), and a warm-iron flux return that contains and supports the stack of cores. This design makes it feasible to provide multiple independent ...
