This analysis is based on the TEAM workshop problem 20. It utilizes the Difference Scalar Potential (DSP) element
formulation with tetrahedral shaped SOLID98 elements. DSP formulation was used because it has much better
accuracy than the Magnetic Vector Potential (MVP) method. Additionally, it is more efficient than the EDGE formulation method. To simplify meshing, the SMRTSIZE meshing option was used to automatically determine
line divisions and spacing ratios while taking into account the line proximity effects. Mesh density can be adjusted
using the SmartSize parameter, for this case, a SmartSizing level of 10 was applied. The analysis is performed
using a quarter symmetry model of the solenoid actuator. The magnetic coil was created using the RACE command.
Magnetic force and boundary conditions were placed on the armature component by using the FMAGBC
command. ANSYS Verification Manual . ANSYS Release 9.0 . 002114 . © SAS IP, Inc. 1–545 VM233 Figure 233.2 Finite...
