Abstract

This paper gives a general overview of the basic features and latest enhancements of the finite element code ELFIN, developed by the authors for research in the electrical engineering field. The basic features are N-dimensional (ID, 2D and 3D) geometrical discretization, wide application area, easy treatment of coupled problems, and generalised iterative procedures. The latest enhancements of the code refer to the computation of non-linear transient eddy currents in open boundary domains, to the solution of electromagnetic scattering problems from inhomogeneous bodies (in 2D an
