Abstract

Due to their high magnetizing field requirement, the emergence of rare‐earth based permanent magnets is creating onerous demands on the capacitor‐discharge systems which are used for their initial magnetization, a process which is aggravated by the fact that the transient current pulse induces eddy currents, which inhibit the penetration of the magnetizing field, and causes heating and stressing of the magnetizing fixture. The problems are compounded in multi‐pole and post‐assembly magnetization systems, particularly for fine pole‐pitch fields. However this paper concentrates on the pre‐magnetization of magnets in air‐cored solenoids, which, despite the difficulty in subsequently handling magnetized magnets, remains the most common requirement. It presents a methodology for the design of impulse magnetizing solenoids to produce the amplitude and time to peak of magnetizing field required for a specific generic type and aspect ratio of magnet to be magnetized, and describes a procedure for the subsequent analysis of the complete impulse magnetization system.
