Abstract

A new method to optimally determine the fixed-point reluctivity is presented to ensure the stable and fast convergence of harmonic solutions. Nonlinear system matrix is linearized by using the fixed-point technique, and harmonic solutions can be decoupled by the diagonal reluctivity matrix. The 1-D and 2-D non-linear eddy current problems under DC-biased magnetization are computed by the proposed method. The computational performance of the new algorithm proves the validity and efficiency of the new algorithm. The corresponding decomposed method is proposed to solve the nonlinear differential equation, in which harmonic solutions of magnetic field and exciting current are decoupled in harmonic domain.
