MAGMA Launch Event – Catch Up

Posted on 21 July 2021 by Kevin Jones

Good afternoon from a very hot Cardiff. It has been two weeks since we had our virtual launch event, so we thought it would be a good time to highlight the success of the event with a shortened blog. We had 80 delegates in attendance overall from 14 different countries including Germany, India, the USA,

Microstructural Magnetic Modelling of Magnetic Anisotropy Considering Crystallographic Texture by Dr Jun Liu

Posted on 30 June 2021 by Kevin Jones

A paradox regarding tensor permeability approaches for considering texture effects on magnetic anisotropy is solved. That is, a magnetic permeability tensor satisfying all the cubic crystal symmetries of steels must reduce to a scalar hence would give isotropic magnetic properties, which would be inconsistent with the experimentally observed anisotropy. This is the first time both

MAGMA Virtual Launch Event 7th July 2021

Posted on 15 June 2021 by Kevin Jones

It is only three weeks now until we host our virtual launch event, so I thought it would be a good time to show what we are planning to do. If you haven’t signed up yet, tickets can be found on the UK MAGSOC portal who are hosting the event for us. The event is

Fault Current Limiter surge protection concept based on a permanent magnet biased core by Jeremy Hall and Faris Al-Naemi

Posted on 25 May 2021 by Kevin Jones

Introduction A new magnetic structure is described, based on interacting AC and DC fluxes in a device comprising permanent magnets and soft magnetic alloy cores in a novel, highly efficient arrangement to render the composite core electrically invisible under normal conditions, but able to respond quickly with a high impedance to limit damaging fault currents.
