In the above equation, [[mu].sub.r] denotes the relative magnetic permeability of a certain component, which is determined as the experimental data as Figure 3, and [A.sub.GMM] denotes the corresponding section area; in GMM, the nonlinearity of its magnetic reluctance is counted by employing a B(H) curve achieved from practical tests.
With the further increase of working air gap, magnetic reluctance increases much, and then magnetic saturation disappears.

If considering the solenoid with the magnetic circuit as being without dispersion, one obtains the equivalent magnetic reluctance:
The principle operation of SRM is grounded on the tendency of an electromagnetic system to obtain a constant equilibrium position minimizing magnetic reluctance. Whenever diametrically opposite stator poles of a SRM are excited, the closest rotor poles are attracted, resulting in torque production.
