3-D Magnetic Equivalent Circuit Framework for Modeling Electromechanical Devices

  title={3-D Magnetic Equivalent Circuit Framework for Modeling Electromechanical Devices},
  author={Marco Amrhein and P. T. Krein},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Energy Conversion},
Magnetic equivalent circuits (MECs) are becoming an accepted alternative to electrical-equivalent lumped-parameter models and finite-element analysis (FEA) for simulating electromechanical devices. Their key advantages are moderate computational effort, reasonable accuracy, and flexibility in model size. MECs are easily extended into three dimensions. But despite the successful use of MEC as a modeling tool, a generalized 3-D formulation useable for a comprehensive computer-aided design tool… CONTINUE READING
