Solenoid Theory

PWM Solenoid Theory

If the voltage steps are applied at a repeated frequency and the percentage "on time" (high voltage) is varied, the current applied to the solenoid will vary and the force created by the solenoid will vary from minimum to maximum. This type of voltage control, where the percent on time is varied, is called "pulse width modulation" control.
