The electro-magnetic energy conversion is given by *Ampere*'s law and *Faraday*'s law respectively:

V_m = i * N N * dΦ/dt = -v

V_m is the magnetomotive force that is supplied to the connected magnetic circuit, Φ is the magnetic flux through the associated branch of this magnetic circuit. The negative sign of the induced voltage v is due to *Lenz*'s law.

The flux linkage Ψ and the static inductance L_stat = |Ψ/i| are calculated for information only. Note that L_stat is set to |Ψ/eps| if |i| < eps (= 100*Modelica.Constants.eps).

This constant reluctance is provided for test purposes and simple magnetic network models. The reluctance is not calculated from geometry and permeability of a flux tube, but is provided as a parameter.

Differently from the flux tube elements of package Shapes.Leakage
that are calculated from their geometry, this leakage reluctance is calculated with reference to the total reluctance of a useful flux path. Please refer to the **Parameters** section for an illustration of the resulting magnetic network. Exploiting *Kirchhoff*'s generalized current law, the leakage reluctance is calculated by means of a coupling coefficient c_usefulFlux.

This element must **not** be used **for dynamic simulation of** electro-magneto-mechanical **actuators**, where the shape of at least one flux tube element with reluctance force generation in the useful flux path changes with armature motion (e.g., air gap). This change results in a non-zero derivative dG_m/dx of those elements permeance G_m with respect to armature position x, which in turn will lead to a non-zero derivative of the leakage permeance with respect to armature position. This would generate a reluctance force in the leakage element that is not accounted for properly. Shapes.Force.LeakageAroundPoles provides a simple leakage reluctance with force generation.

Eddy currents are induced in a conductive magnetic flux tube when the flux changes with time. This causes a magnetic voltage drop in addition to the voltage drop that is due to the reluctance of this flux tube. The eddy current component can be thought of as a short-circuited secundary winding of a transformer with only one turn. Its resistance is calculated from the geometry and resistivity of the eddy current path.

Partitioning of a solid conductive cylinder or prism into several hollow cylinders or separate nested prisms and modelling of each of these flux tubes connected in parallel with a series connection of a reluctance element and an eddy current component can model the delayed buildup of the magnetic field in the complete flux tube from the outer to the inner sections. Please refer to [Ka08] for an illustration.
