Theory and Basics
The basis equations:
(1) rot h = j
(2) div b = 0
(3) b = µ h
(4) n x h | Γh = 0
(5) n * b | Γe = 0
(6) b = rot a
Magnetostatic weak a-formulation:
(7) ( µ-1 rot a, rot a’ )Ω
+ (-µ-1 bs, rot a’ ) Ω
+ (- j, a’ ) ΩC
= 0, for all a’ element of Ω
Basic Example: Team Problem 20: Static Force Analysis
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.
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.
