Electrodynamic Force Transducers

  • Dan Mihai Ştefănescu


Table 8.1, including two redrawn figures after Antonin Platil [8.1], shows the main characteristics of electromagnetic and electrodynamic devices, as well as their fundamental difference: voltages are induced by transformation or by moving. Certain authors use interchangeably the two words; they have the same “root.” These terms, like their defined phenomena, are strongly connected.


Natural Rubber Electromagnetic Force Circuit Breaker Capacitive Sensor Active Vibration Control 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
