[more ▼] A subproblem h-conformal eddy current nite element method is proposed for correcting the inaccuracies inherent to thin shell models. Such models replace volume thin regions by surfaces but neglect border e ects in the vicinity of their edges and corners. The developed surface-to-volume correction problem is de ned as a step of the multiple subproblems that can split a complete problem, consisting of inductors and magnetic or conducting regions, some of these being thin regions.

[more ▼] The direct application of the finite element method to realistic electromagnetic problems is challenging, especially when modeling structures with thin conductive and/or magnetic parts. This work presents a subproblem method for correcting the inaccuracies inherent to classical thin shell models, and to efficiently handle geometrical and material variations in parametric studies.

[more ▼] A subproblem method (SPM) with h-formulation is developed for correcting the inaccuracies near edges and corners that arise from using thin shell (TS) models to replace thin volume regions by surfaces. The developed surface-to-volume correction problem is defined as a step of multiple SPs, with inductors and magnetic or conducting regions, some of them being thin. The TS model assumes that the fields in the thin regions are approximated by a priori 1-D analytical distributions along the shell thickness (C. Geuzaine et al., “Dual formulations for the modeling of thin electromagnetic shells using edge elements,” IEEE Trans. Magn., vol. 36, no. 4, pp. 799–802, 2000). Their interior is not meshed and ratherextracted from the studied domain, which is reduced to a zero-thickness double layer with interface conditions (ICs) linked to 1-D analytical distributions that however neglect end and curvature effects. This leads to inaccuracies near edges and corners that increase with the thickness. To cope with these difficulties, the authors have recently proposed a SPM based on the h-formulation for a thin region located between non-conducting regions (Vuong Q. Dang et al., “Subproblem Approach for Thin Shell Dual Finite Element Formulations”, IEEE Trans. Magn., vol. 48, no. 2, pp. 407–410, 2012). The magnetic field h is herein defined in nonconducting regions by means of a magnetic scalar potential , i.e. h = -grad{\phi} , with discontinuities of through the TS. In this paper, the SPM is extended to account for thin regions located between conducting regions or between conducting and nonconducting regions, in the general case of multiply connected regions. In these regions, the potential is not defined anymore on both sides of the TS and the problem has to be expressed in terms of the discontinuities of h, possibly involving on one side only, to be strongly defined via an IC through the TS. In the proposed SP strategy, a reduced problem with only inductors is first solved on a simplified mesh without thin and volume regions. Its solution gives surface sources (SSs) as ICs for added TS regions, and volume sources (VSs) for possible added volume regions. The TS solution is further improved by a volume correction via SSs and VSs that overcome the TS assumptions, respectively suppressing the TS model and adding the volume model. Each SP has its own separate mesh, which increases the computational efficiency. Details on the proposed method will be given in the extended paper, with practical applications.

[more ▼] The shielding of buried three-phase high-voltage power lines can be done by placing them in conducting ferromagnetic U-shaped gutters covered with plates. In case of a perfect electrical contact between adjacent gutters and between adjacent cover plates, induced currents in the shield efficiently reduce the magnetic field generated by the cables. As however a perfect contact cannot be guaranteed, in practice, it is useful to quantify the effect of a defective electrical contact on the field reduction. From two-dimensional/three-dimensional finite element computations and experiments, the influence of the contact resistance on the shielding efficiency is investigated, as a function of the ratio of axial length to height of the shield elements. Furthermore, the effect of other parameters on the shielding efficiency is studied: the ratio of axial length to height, a parasitic air gap between the gutter and the cover plate and the type of the shield material. It was found that a low contact resistance deteriorates much more the shielding in case of an aluminium shield than in case of a steel shield. As expected, the effect is larger for shield elements with relatively short axial length with regard to the other dimensions. Nevertheless, the effect remains quite significant for aluminium shields with practically convenient dimensions.

Parameterized analyses of thin regions are efficiently performed.
