Magnetism, Discharge of
The loosing of magnetization. Thus in a shunt-wound dynamo there is a critical resistance for the outer circuit, below which the field ceases to be magnetized, as enough current ceases to be shunted into it to magnetize it. The machine is said to unbuild itself, and a discharge of magnetism occurs from the field magnet.
