Solenoid design

  1. Nov 20, 2008 #1
    I want to calculate the electrical parameters of solenoid coil of a valve for a given spring force.
    I know the force required to pull the solenoid plunger through a given distance against a spring, is there any formula to find out the required voltage, number of turns of coil winding & current .

    The wikipedia page is a good place to start, and you can follow the links at the bottom of the page for more detailed info:
