Electromagnetic pumps have several advantages to mechanical pumps. They offer maneuverability by directional thrust along with quietness and are conceived with an aim of eliminating all moving parts, being also free from problems of wear and tiredness of use. The flow field in the channel is treated as steady state, incompressible and fully developed laminar flow conditions. Our numerical code DCPMHD uses cylindrical coordinates (r,ϕ , z) and solves the incompressible MHD equations for magnetic vector potential A and fluid velocity V. Using finite volume method for numerical calculation. The numerical results of the performance characteristics of a DC electromagnetic pump are discussed and show that our new concept is capable to deliver bi-directional activation and have a satisfactory controllability, because of its proportional output force and input current relationship.
