# Can we increase the magnetic flux for a permanent magnet?

When we pass current to the permanent magnet does its magnetic flux, magnetic property of attraction and repulsion increases? if possible Is there any other way for increasing the magnetic flux?

You cannot increase the local magnetic flux as it is conserved because of Maxwell's equations : $\vec{\nabla}.\vec{B} = 0$. However, you can use soft magnetic materials, often called magnetic cores to concentrate the flux in a certain area and locally increase the magnetic field.
