Numerical results obtained by first- order finite difference and finite element algorithms are compared with closed-form solutions to the finite- depth-slot problem and to the section of an annulus of magnetic and nonmagnetic material, the magnetic field of which is caused by a current-carrying conductor of circular section. Magnitude and boundary condition errors are calculated with respect to these exact solutions, and both methods are compared numerically as applied to a finite slot pitch… CONTINUE READING
