3-D Eddy Current Analysis by the Edge Elements
A method for 3-D eddy current analysis is given and applied to a problem of asymmetrical conductor with a hole (Problem 7 in Testing Electromagnetic Analysis Methods (TEAM) Workshop). Adopting the A-Φ formulation, we approximate a weak formulation by the mixed finite element method which was originally developed by the third author for the magnetostatic analysis , . Though the mesh is coarser than the proposed one, our results almost agree with experimental ones.
