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.

. Abstract: Electrical machines commonly consist of moving and stationary parts, e.g., an electric motor features a rotor and a stator. If volume based numerical schemes such as the Finite Element Method (FEM) are applied the electromagnetic simulation of such devices is a challenging task since the variation of the geometrical configuration needs to be incorporated into the numerical scheme.
