Open and closed position of the armature and flux linkage, Mechanical Engineering

Q. For an electromagnetic system, show that the energy stored in a magnetic field is equal to the area enclosed b/w magnetization curves for open and closed position of the armature and flux linkage - current locus during the armature moment.

Sol. Consider a simple magnetic relay. Initially the armature is in the open position. When switch S is closed, current I is established in the N turn - coil. The flux set up depends upon mmf Ni and the reluctance of the magnetic path. The magnetic field thus produced, creates North and South poles and as a result of it., there is established a magnetic force tending to shortern the air - gap.


        If the armature is not allowed to move, the mechanical work done, dWmech. Is zero.




               dWelec = 0 + dWfld


               (dWelec =   dWmech. + dWfld)


          This shows that when the movable part of any physical system is kept fixed, the entire electrical energy input is stored in the magnetic field.


                  dWfld = dWelec


and            dWfld = dWelec = i.dψ = F.dΦ


  If the initial flux is zero, then the magnetic field energy stored Wfld, in establishing a flux Φ1 or flux linkage ψ1, is given by



                  Wfld = ψ1 0(i.d ψ1 = Φ1 0(F.d Φ


I and F must be expressed in terms of ψ and Φ.

When the armature is held in open position then the most of the m.m.f. is consumed in the air - gap and it is likely that magnetic saturation may not occur.


             Wfld = Φ1 0( dWfld = Φ1 0(F.dQ = area OABO


            Wfld = ψ1 0(d. Wfld = ψ1 0(i.d ψ1 = area OABO



        Area OACO = (d. Wfld = F1 0( Φ.dF =   i1 0( ψ.di


         This area OACO is called the co - energy Wfld


W'fld = F1 0( Φ.dF =   i1 0( ψ.di


Above, ψ and Φ must be expressed in terms of F and I respectively. Co - energy has no physical significance, it is however useful in calculating the magnetic forces.


                        With no magnetic saturation,


                                   Area OABO = Area OACO


 Or                              Wfld =   W'fld


 And                     Wfld +  W'fld  = Area OCABO =  Φ1F1 = ψ1i1


In general, for magnetic circuit,


                                        Wfld =   W'fld  = 1/2 ψi = 1/2FΦ
