    What theory or property what describe this:
    when pump a massive amount of electrical energy it creates a large electromagnetic field.
    I am specifically talking about how it can make an EMP in this scenario, not an electromagnet. I need this for a school project I am working on.
    any help would be great fully appreciated.

    Why are people obsessed with EMP?

    If you want EMP, just set of a nuke in the upper atmosphere. Anything else hardly counts.

    Certainly what you're describing doesn't count.

    Or read up on solar flares and their effect on the earth.

    I was actually doing this for a science fair project, and I actually had an effect. my intent was to not just have some poorly done research, but actually have some results. And I did get results with this. I didn't want to just talk about the threat, I actually wanted to do something relating to it. So I did. And also there is another way to cause one besides a nuke, use an explosively pumped flux compression generator.

    This is not an electronics thing, it's a physics thing. I would recommend asking the question on a physics forum.

    If you want to talk about protecting electronics from the effects, then we may be able to assist.
