THE USE OF FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS PACKAGES FOR ELECTROMAGNETIC ANALYSIS SIMULATION ANDDESIGN OF INDUCTION HEATING
Daniel Mayer - Bohuš Ulrych
The aim of the paper is to draw attention to a new method
of electrical engineering design which is based on the
solution of the electromagnetic or, as the case may be,
other physical eg temperature) field. The method relies on
the use of finite element analysis packages. The
induction heating of a short cylinder is solved as an
illustrative example by using the PC-2D package.
Keywords: induction heating, electromagnetic field analysis, numerical solution of electromagnetic field, eddy currents.
