[more ▼] In this work, the error made by frequency domain homogenization of windings in 2-D magnetodynamics is quantified. To that end, the homogenized fields are combined with the analytical solutions (a) of eddy currents flowing in a circular conductor placed in a uniform alternating magnetic induction (proximity effect) and (b) of current density in conductors with non-zero net current (skin effect). They are then compared to the fields from the fine model, taken as reference. It is shown that error on resistance can reach 10\% at high frequencies for magnetic components with a limited number of turns. Procedures to improve winding R, L parameters estimation from homogenized solution are introduced.

[more ▼] A sub-problem finite element method is developed for correcting the inaccuracies near edges and corners inherent to thin shell models, for both magnetostatic and magnetodynamic problems. A thin shell solution, supported by a simplified mesh near the thin structures, serves as a source of a correction problem with the actual volumic thin regions alone in a homogeneous medium, concentrating the meshing effort on the thin regions only. Improvements of local fields are efficiently achieved and allow accurate force and loss calculations.

[more ▼] In this paper a hybrid approach for considering massive conducting regions in time-domain finite-element modeling is presented. Surface impedance boundary conditions, developed in the time domain as previously proposed by the authors, are adopted so as to allow for high-frequency flux components (in a certain frequency band) without the need for very fine discretisation of the conducting region near its surface. These surface conditions are combined with a coarse FE mesh inside the region for conveying slowly varying flux components. The correct impedance behaviour can thus be obtained in a wide frequency range, from DC flux on. The approach is briefly demonstrated by means of a simple 1D test case.

[more ▼] This paper presents a new method for solving scattering problems by multiple objects. A model reduction algorithm based on the Macro Basis Functions (MBFs) method is used to find an approximate solution within a subspace of solutions, that are the solutions of several single scattering subproblems. Different iterative methods for the generation of the MBFs are compared. The whole process relies on a finite element approach and is applied to convex obstacles scattering.

[more ▼] A sub-problem finite element method is developed for refining the inductor models in magnetic circuits. It applies electrokinetic, magnetostatic and magnetodynamic models on progressively more complicated geometries and different components of the solution, supported by different meshes. It allows an efficient and robust analyze of magnetic circuits in any frequency range, with an accurate calculation of Joule losses and forces in inductors.

[more ▼] Purpose – The aim of this paper is the experimental validation of an original time-domain thin-shell formulation. The numerical results of a three-dimensional thin-shell model are compared with the measurements performed on a heating device at different working frequencies. Design/methodology/approach – A time-domain extension of the classical frequency-domain thin-shell approach is used for the finite-element analysis of a shielded pulse-current induction heater. The time-domain interface conditions at the shell surface are expressed in terms of the average flux density vector in the shell, as well as in terms of a limited number of higher-order components. Findings – A very good agreement between measurements and simulations is observed. A clear advantage of the proposed thin-shell approach is that the mesh of the computation domain does not depend on the working frequency anymore. It provides a good compromise between computational cost and accuracy. Indeed, adding a sufficient number of induction components, a very high accuracy can be achieved. Originality/value – The method is based on the coupling of a time-domain 1D thin-shell model with a magnetic vector potential formulation via the surface integral term. A limited number of additional unknowns for the magnetic flux density are incorporated on the shell boundary.

[more ▼] Model refinements of magnetic circuits are performed via a subdomain finite element method. A complete problem is split into subproblems with overlap- ping meshes, to allow a progression from source to reaction fields, ideal to real flux tubes, 1-D to 3-D models, perfect to real materials, statics to dynamics, with any coupling of these changes. Its solution is then the sum of the subproblem solutions. The procedure simplifies both meshing and solving processes, and quantifies the gain given by each refinement on both local fields and global quantities.
