Can orbit be raised by magnetorque ?



Thinking on a future LEO Sun-synchronous satellite project, this question was made.

What happens if  when satellite in the north we apply a north magnetic field on z plane, will satellite raise orbit ?.

Same but opposite on south. Due limited energy available could this raise be significant if applied on all orbits ?. 

Thanks for any answer or comment.
