Abstract

This paper sought to present harmonic-balanced method for finite element analysis of nonlinear eddy current field. The harmonic-balanced method can be used to compute the time-periodic electromagnetic field in harmonic domain, considering electric circuits coupled with the nonlinear magnetic field. 2-D and simplified 3-D model of laminated core is established and computed to prove the accuracy and validity of the proposed method. The calculated magnetizing current is compared with the measured results and the computed magnetic field is analyzed to investigate the effect of DC bias.
