## How to calculate optimum amount of power for electromagnet

(OP)

Hi guys,

Is there a formula for calculating the optimum amount of power for X gauge wire and X number of turns? I'm curious if there's a better method than my method of wildly guessing.

Is it air core or iron core? That matters also.

Get the book.

Duty cycle is very important when looking at power consumption/heat dissipation.

There are other books also, but most of the good ones that I know of were published before 1950.
