The simulation of magnetic fields with geometric discretization schemes using magnetic vector potentials involves the solution of very large discrete consistently singular curl‐curl systems of equations. Geometric and algebraic multigrid schemes for their solution require intergrid transfer operators of restriction and prolongation that achieve the discrete conservation of integral quantities serving as state‐variables of geometric discretization methods. For non‐conservative restriction operations, a consistency error correction operator related to an algebraic filtering is proposed. Numerical results show the effects of the consistency correction for a non‐nested geometric multigrid method.
