Cylindrical magnetic device (actuator)

The cylindrical magnetic device consists of a fixed magnetic part, cylindrical magnetic plunger and a coil.

Problem Type:
Axisymmetric problem of DC magnetics.

Geometry:

cylindrical magnetic device

Given:
Number of turns N = 1000;
Current i = 5 A;
Plunger position g = 5 mm.

Problem:
Determine the magnetic force and the inductance.

Results:
cylindrical magnetic device flux density

cylindrical magnetic device force

cylindrical magnetic device inductance

The inductance of the multiturn winding:
L = N2 · Ψ / I,
where I - is an overall current: I = N·i = 1000·5 = 5000 A.

L = 10002 · 0.00025468 / 5000 = 0.509 Hn
