Abstract

PurposeThis paper aims to propose the use of isogeometric analysis (IGA) for the simulation of electrical machines to represent their geometries exactly and obtain numerical solutions of high accuracy and regularity.Design/methodology/approachIGA makes use of non-uniform rational b-splines to parametrise the domain and approximate the solution spaces. Dealing with the different stator and rotor topologies, the computational domain is split into two non-overlapping parts on which Maxwell’s equations are solved independently and are interconnected by a classical Schwarz domain decomposition scheme. The results are compared with the conventional polynomial finite element method (FEM).FindingsThe new methodology is reliable and efficient. The obtained solutions of the fields are in good agreement with the ones obtained by the FEM approach. IGA offers a better accuracy than FEM.Originality/valueThe application of IGA combined with domain decomposition to the model of an electric machine is a new and original contribution.
