I'm building a system that is using the Lorentz force principle, of when a wire is placed in a magnetic field(##B##) with length(##L##) and has current flowing(##I##) there is a force = ##IL \times B## that would move the wire. I want to take into account of every single thing that will happen after. Inductance in the beginning for current stabilization. Induced-EMF, because there is change in flux due to the motion of the conductor in the magnetic field , ##\epsilon= -vBL## . But, prior to motion there is something confusing me, when the wire has current flowing, it produces it's own magnetic field that is parallel to the exterior field and is in opposition, there will be induced EMF that is similar to motional EMF to oppose that change, however, is there a slight attractive/repulsive force between the wire and the exterior magnetic field source(magnet/electromagnet)? Similar to when two wires carrying current are placed near one another (depending on the direction of current) there is a force of attraction/repulsion. How can a wire move in a magnetic field due to the Lorentz force, when it's own magnetic field interacting with the exterior field causes an opposing attractive/repulsive force? Although, the wire's magnetic field is parallel to the exterior one, but doubt that makes a difference. Bit confusing on that note.
