# The application of the research work of James Clerk Maxwell in electromagnetics to industrial frequency problems

@article{Lowther2008TheAO, title={The application of the research work of James Clerk Maxwell in electromagnetics to industrial frequency problems}, author={D. Lowther and E. Freeman}, journal={Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences}, year={2008}, volume={366}, pages={1807 - 1820} }

Faraday's work inspired the development of electrical motors and generators. Until Maxwell pointed out the significance of Ampere's Law, there was no rigorous design method for magnetic devices. His interpretation strongly influenced the creation, by others, of the ‘magnetic circuit’ approach, which became the seminal design technique. This, utilizing the concept of reluctance, led to the design method for magnetic machines that is still widely in use today. The direct solution of the Maxwell… Expand
