COMPUTATIONAL ERROR IN REDUCED SCALAR MAGNETIC POTENTIAL PROBLEMS

COMPUTATIONAL ERROR IN REDUCED SCALAR MAGNETIC POTENTIAL PROBLEMS The reduced scalar potential representation of magnetic fields is widely believed to be numerically unstable where large permeability contrasts e.g., 10001 prevail. This belief is theoretically unfounded. Computational errors reported in the literature are shown to arise mainly in the process of finite element discretization, where extraneous source densities are introduced when applied magnetic fields are approximated by fields not wholly solenoidal. Simple experiments show local energy density errors of several per cent even in regions of uniform permeability, independently of element order. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png COMPEL: The International Journal for Computation and Mathematics in Electrical and Electronic Engineering Emerald Publishing

Abstract

The reduced scalar potential representation of magnetic fields is widely believed to be numerically unstable where large permeability contrasts e.g., 10001 prevail. This belief is theoretically unfounded. Computational errors reported in the literature are shown to arise mainly in the process of finite element discretization, where extraneous source densities are introduced when applied magnetic fields are approximated by fields not wholly solenoidal. Simple experiments show local energy density errors of several per cent even in regions of uniform permeability, independently of element order.
