## MagAirC:

Path: SC/Actuator

% Designs an air coil by minimizing a weighted combination of power and mass.
If wire is not input it will use #24 aluminum.
If the dipole is a vector it will plot mass and power vs. dipole
if no output arguments are entered. Otherwise it will plot mass and
power vs. current.
Since version 1.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Form:
[power, mass, nTurns, current] = MagAirC( dipole, dim, weight, wire )
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
------
Inputs
------
dipole (n) Desired dipole (ATM^2)
dim (2 or 1) [l,w] or [r] (m)
weight (2) [weight constraint] if weight == 0 constraint = power
if weight == inf constraint = mass
e.g. [inf 4] will constrain the coil to 4 kg
[0 4] will constrain the coil to dissipate 4 watts.
weight(1) is the ratio of the (weight of coil mass/weight of coil power)
wire (3) [resistivity, density, area]
-------
Outputs
-------
power Required power (watts)
mass Total mass
nTurns Number of turns
current Current (A)
