Could we raise orbit thru magnetorque?



In thinking on a future satellite project, this question was made.

Argument is:  if when satellite is in the north, a north magnetic field is applied on z plane, will satellite raise orbit ? Same but opposite on south. Considering limited energy available could this raise be significant if applied on all orbits ?. 

Tks for any answer or argument.
