What is reluctance?
It is the property of the magnetic material to oppose the magnetic lines of flux.S=F/
where F = MMF;
= Flux; S = Reluctance in Ampere Turns per Weber.
What is quasi static field?
It is the field pattern which is fixed in space but field intensity at every pointvaries as a replica of time variation of current.
What is leakage flux?
The flux which takes a path which is not intended for it is called leakage flux.
What is fringing effect?
While passing through the non magnetic medium the magnetic lines of force tryto bulge out because the lines of force repel each other. This is fringing effect.
