IEEE Milwaukee Magnetics will host a chapter event on Tuesday, Nov. 28, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. in Olin Engineering 202.
No RSVP is required.
Visualizing magnetic flux paths in air is critical to calculating the performance of magnetic devices that have leakage flux and air gaps such as actuators and transformers. Methods for visualizing magnetic flux paths in air are described, which leads to calculations for permeance, inductance and forces. Magnetic material properties and typical alloys are reviewed. Basic correlations are combined to evaluate the performance of transformers (flux density, core loss, leakage, power).
