Leakage Factor in Magnetic Circuit
Leakage coefficient or leakage factor is the ratio of the total flux produced to the useful flux established in the magnetic circuit's air gap. It is denoted by (λ).
λ = Φa/Φg
The quantity of electric or magnetic field lines that flow across a surface in a specific period of time is known as flux. Field lines offer a way to visualize the size and direction of the field under study.
Flux is a continuous movement or change, or a flow of liquid from the body. Flux can manifest as diarrhea. A list of a job's duties that is constantly changing is an example of flux.
Field lines, which are also known as lines of force, make it easier to understand how flux is measured and how it relates to an electric or magnetic field. The arrows on the lines indicate the field's direction. Their abundance reveals the power of the field. The strength of the field increases with density.
Leakage factor in magnetic circuit is defined as - (a) total flux + useful flux (b) total flux × useful flux (c) useful flux / total flux (d) total flux / useful flux
Total flux divided by usable flux is the definition of leakage factor in a magnetic circuit. Leakage flux is the magnetic flux in a magnetic circuit that deviates from the precisely designed path.
