Definitions for magnetic circuit
A closed path of magnetic flux
The Standard Electrical Dictionary
A magnetic field of force is characterized by the presence of lines of force, which, while approximately parallel, curve around and tend to form closed curves. The polarity of a field of force is referred to an imaginary direction of the lines of force from the north pole through space to the south pole, and in the part of the field corresponding to the body of the magnet, from the south to the north pole. The cut indicates these features. Hence the magnetic field of force is termed the magnetic circuit, and to it are attributed a species of resistance termed reluctance, q. v., and the producing cause of the field or lines of force is termed sometimes magneto-motive force, q. v.) corresponding to the electro-motive force. The modern treatment of the magnetic circuit is similar to the application of Ohm's law and the laws of resistance and conductivity to the electric circuit.
