Lecture 15 Equivalent Circuits and Inductance Matrix There is a perfect equivalence between magnetic and electric circuits. Recalling figures from previous lectures, let Ac be the cross-sectional area of the iron core, Ag the cross- sectional area of the air gap so that Ag>Ac. The steps to convert the magnetic circuit to its electric equivalent are as follows: 1. Identify sources of magneto motive force (mmf), which are the coils. The equivalents for these are voltage sources with magnitude Ni. Figure 1 - mmf to voltage source Note the polarity of the voltage source; it has to be consistent with the direction of the flux Φ and the current I. 2. Identify and label fluxes Φ in branches and equivalent currents I. 3. Identify branch reluctances and their equivalent resistances. 0 , c c c g g c c g l g R R A A µ µ = ℜ = = ℜ = Thus the equivalent circuit for an iron core with an air gap and a single coil would be, Es Rc Rg Figure 2 - Equivalent circuit

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
