[en] Analyses of magnetic circuits with position changes of both massive and stranded conductors are performed via a finite element subproblem method. A complete problem is split into subproblems associated with each conductor and the magnetic regions. Each complete solution is then expressed as the sum of subproblem solutions supported by different meshes. The subproblem procedure simplifies both meshing and solving processes, with no need of remeshing, and accurately quantifies the effect of the position changes of conductors on both local fields, e.g. skin and proximity effects, and global quantities, e.g. inductances and forces. Applications covering parameterized analyses on conductor positions to moving conductor systems benefit from the developed approach.
