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 cc gg g l g RR AA µµ =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
