Theoretical and experimental modelling investigations have demonstrated that electromagnetic induction pumps based on the principle of rotating permanent magnets (PMP) have many advantages in comparison with traditional linear inductor pumps [1]. For the so-called disc type pump design concept, a mathematical model on the distribution of magnetic field induced electrical currents and electromagnetic forces has been developed to calculate the pressure-flow rate characteristics of the pump.
