An inductor has a magnetic core with relative permeability of u = 8000, cross-section A = 25 cm2 and the length of the
magnetic path I = 50 cm. The inductor is to operate at the voltage RMS value U = 240 V. Calculate the number of the coil
turns N on the condition that the magnetic ﬂux density is not higher than B = 1.2 [Wb/mz]. Calculate the inductanceL of
the inductor and its current RMS value at U = 240 V. Since —N = 44
J5 4 NAme hence, the number of the coil turns is The core reluctance R0: I =-—+57-7=19.9'103A/Wb.

Calculate the air gap width A that would reduce the inductor current RMS value by half as compared to its value
calculated in Problem 2. To reduce the coil current by half, its inductance should have double value, i.e., L ' = 2 x L = 1.0 H. Thus, the core
should have reluctance 1N2=_l_ 2_ . 3

thus, the reluctanc of the air gap should be
R’a =R'—Rc =90.o-103—19.9-103 =70-103A/Wb
The air gap has such reluctance when its length is
