at θ = 0 and r = r∞ , A = -Bor = -.084. The vector potential A varies along r∞ as Aθ = -Bor cos θ. ANSYS Verification Manual . ANSYS Release 9.0 . 002114 . © SAS IP, Inc. 1–368 VM166
The cylinder is assumed to be infinitely long, thus end effects are ignored allowing for a two-dimensional planar
analysis. The problem can be modeled in quarter symmetry with the flux-parallel (A = 0) boundary condition at
x = 0, and the flux-normal (natural) boundary condition at y = 0. The average power loss in the cylinder is calculated
from the real and imaginary power loss density (JHEAT) terms available in the database:
n Pavg = ∑ (JHEAT Re + JHEAT lm ) Vi
i =1 when n is the number of elements in the aluminum cylinder, Vi is the element volume (per-unit-depth). A fine
mesh is defined in the cylinder for accurate calculation of the power loss. Results Comparison
