Abstract

The domain ^integration software package for computing quasi-static magnetic fields Adrianus T. de Hoop, loan E. Lager^ Faculty of Information Technology and Systems, ^International Research Centre for Telecommunications-transmission and Radar, Delft University of Technology, 4, 2628 CD DzZ/f, Abstract A software package that implements an unconventional algorithm in the class of complementary numerical formulations is discussed. It aims at computing quasi-static magnetic fields in three-dimensional space and is based on a complementary formulation of the domain-integrated form of the field equations. Consistently linear edge and face expansion functions are employed for the discretisation of the field quantities. Accuracy and convergence of the numerical solution are tested by applying the method to some two-dimensional problems whose solution is known analytically. 1 Introduction The traditional approach to constructing complementary numerical formu- lations in the real
