t = .01 m Analysis Assumptions and Modeling Notes
The problem is solved using coupled-field solid elements (SOLID98). The permanent magnet is polarized along
a line at Θ = -30° to the Z-axis in the X-Z plane. The coercive force components are calculated as MG169 = Hc cos
Θ = 129,900, MGZZ = Hc sin Θ = -75,000. The permanent magnet relative permeability, µr, is calculated as: µr = Br
µoHo ( 4π × 10 )(150, 000) The iron is assumed to be highly permeable and is assigned a value µr = 1 x 105.
Since the device is symmetric only half of the circuit is required for modeling. At the symmetry plane the flux
lines are orthogonal, so a flux-normal (Φ = 0) boundary condition is applied. With no l...
