Abstract

This research proposes a robust correction procedure to improve inaccuracies around edges and corners inherent to thin shell electromagnetic problems by means of perturbation technique. This proposal is developed with three processes: A classical thin shell approximation replaced with an impedance-type interface condition across a surface is first considered and then a volume correction is introduced to overcome the thin shell approximation. However, the volume correction is quite sensitive to cancellation errors, with dramatic effects in the calculation of the local fields near edges and corners. Therefore, a robust correction procedure is added to improve cancellation errors of the volume correction. Each step of the developed method is validated on the practical problem.

Keywords: thin shell approximation, magnetic field, eddy current, joule power loss, perturbation method, subproblem method
