Advances in Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Book Series






This text provides an overview of numerical field computational methods and, in particular, of the finite element method (FEM) in magnetics. Detailed attention is paid to the practical use of the FEM in designing electromagnetic devices such as motors, transformers and actuators.

Based on the authors' extensive experience of teaching numerical techniques to students and design engineers, the book is ideal for use as a text at undergraduate and graduate level, or as a primer for practising engineers who wish to learn the fundamentals and immediately apply these to actual design problems.

Contents: Introduction; Computer-Aided Design in Magnetics; Electromagnetic Fields; Potentials and Formulations; Field Computation and Numerical Techniques; Coupled Field Problems; Numerical Optimisation; Linear System Equation Solvers; Modelling of Electrostatic and Magnetic Devices; Examples of Computed Models.
