What is Reluctance?
Magnetic reluctance, or magnetic resistance, is analogous to resistance in an electrical circuit (although it does not dissipate magnetic energy). In likeness to the way an electric field causes an electric current to follow the path of least resistance, a magnetic field causes magnetic flux to follow the path of least magnetic reluctance. It is a scalar, extensive quantity, akin to electrical resistance.
How to Calculate Permeance?
Permeance calculator uses Magnetic Permeance = 1/Reluctance to calculate the Magnetic Permeance, The Permeance formula is defined as the inverse of reluctance. In a magnetic circuit, permeance is a measure of the quantity of magnetic flux for a number of current-turns. Magnetic Permeance is denoted by P symbol.
