( Electrical engineering : Electrical power ) Magnetomotive force
is the force that sets up a magnetic field within and around an object.
The duration of each positive and negative voltage is controlled so as to provide
alternating positive and negative peaks of current excitation or magnetomotive force of uniformly equal amplitudes.
The unit of magnetomotive force is the ampere-turn, represented by a steady, direct electric current of one ampere
flowing in a single-turn loop of electrically conducting material in a vacuum.
Magnetomotive force is the force that sets up a magnetic field within and around an object.
