The slot is assumed to be infinitely long, so end effects are ignored, allowing for a two-dimensional planar analysis. An assumption is made that the steel slot is infinitely permeable and thus is replaced with a flux-normal
boundary condition. It is also assumed that the flux is contained within the slot, so a flux-parallel boundary
condition is placed along the top of the slot. ANSYS Verification Manual . ANSYS Release 9.0 . 002114 . © SAS IP, Inc. 1–416 VM185
The problem requires a coupled electromagnetic field analysis using the VOLT and AZ degrees of freedom. All
VOLT DOFs within the copper conductor are coupled together to enforce the correct solution of the source
current density component of the total current density. The eddy current component of the total current density
is determined from the AZ DOF solution. The current may be applied to a single arbitrary node in the conductor,
since they are all coupled together in VOLT.
The complex impedance of the slot is calculated in POST1 from the equation...
