Develops a method to take the eddy currents in stacked thin regions, in particular lamination stacks, into account with the finite element method using the 3D magnetic vector potential magnetodynamic formulation. It consists in converting the stacked laminations into continuums with which terms are associated for considering the eddy current loops produced by both parallel and perpendicular fluxes. Non‐zero global currents can be considered in the laminations, in particular for studying the effect of imperfect insulation between their ends. The method is based on an analytical expression of eddy currents and is adapted to a wide frequency range.
