In powder compaction, the great influence of the drive structure upon the electromagnetic force is a key problem to be addressed. A simulation is carried out to analyze the parameters of electromagnetic compaction drive structure by using ANSYS software. And in the two-dimensional model, the study focuses on the effects on electromagnetic pressure, which are produced by the bore and height of the coil, the radius and resistivity of the driver slice, and interval between coil and driver slice. The final results show that electromagnetic pressure of inverse correlates with other parameters of different forms and will grow slowly if the radius is increasing. On the basis of simulation, we draw the general rules of plane coil and driver slice parameter selection.
