## Theory and Basics

### Formulations

The basis equations:
(1)        rot h = j
(2)        div b = 0
(3)        b = µ h

Boundary conditions:
(4)        n x h  | Γh = 0
(5)        n * b  | Γe = 0

Vectorpotential a:

(6)        b = rot a

Magnetostatic weak a-formulation:

(7)            ( µ-1 rot a, rot a’ )Ω
+ (-µ-1 bs, rot a’ ) Ω
+ (- ja’ ) ΩC
= 0, for all a’ element of Ω

This example is a test case for electromagnetic analysis software tools. There are measured results available that we will use for comparison of our results. Mesh of a quarter of the geometry. ## Results

Fluxdensity and Force

The magnetic Fluxdensity result is displayed as contourplot. or following as vectorplot The force is calculated on each node.

The measured reference result for 3000 A is 8.1 N. In Magnetics for NX / Simcenter, using a standards mesh, the result is 8.2 N.
