In this paper a moderate technique has been developed to improve an electromagnetic actuation principle for pumping systems, thus obtaining pulsating flow. This work consists of two parts, namely, a numerical part, in which ANSYS software is adopted to simulate the pumping process, while the experimental part consists of the fabrication and testing of the computer controlled electromagnetic pumping system. The objective of this work is to enhance both flow rate and outlet pressure. This was achieved via two main parameters, namely, the electromagnetic pulse duration and the width of each electromagnet. Results show that flow rate and outlet pressure increase with decreasing the pulse duration and with increasing each electromagnet width.
