Abstract

Purpose

This paper seeks to model magneto‐harmonic solid conductors in the presence of ferromagnetic materials.

Design/methodology/approach

The approach takes the form of a coupling between the FEM and the PEEC method.

Findings

The paper shows one how to use the FEM‐PEEC coupled method to model a problem comprising solid conductors and ferromagnetic materials and compare its results with the FEM.

Research limitations/implications

The formulation allows one to treat linear material in the magneto‐harmonic assumption.

Originality/value

The two methods FE and PEEC are well‐known. The innovation here is coupling these methods in order to profit by the main advantages.
