New paper on isogeometric analysis of electrical machines

Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering has accepted our paper on Isogeometric analysis and harmonic stator–rotor coupling for simulating electric machines with DOI 10.1016/j.cma.2018.01.047. The paper proposes Isogeometric Analysis as an alternative to classical finite elements for simulating electric machines. Through the spline-based discretisation it is possible to parametrise the circular arcs exactly, thereby avoiding any geometrical error in the representation of the air gap where a high accuracy is mandatory.
