Spin-motive force has drawn attention because it contains a fundamental physical property. Spin-motive force creates effective electric and magnetic fields in moving magnetization; a vortex is a plausible system for observing the spin-motive force because of the abrupt profile of magnetization. However, the time-averaged value of a spin-motive force becomes zero when a vortex core undergoes gyroscopic motion. By means of micro magnetic simulation, we demonstrates that a non-zero time-averaged electric field induced by spin-motive force under certain conditions. We propose an experimental method of detecting spin-motive force that provides a better understanding of spin transport in ferromagnetic system.
