Abstract

A 3D volume integral formulation based on a generalization of the PEEC method (Partial Element Equivalent Circuit) for the computation of AC losses in the superconducting materials is developed and detailed. This can be achieved by the use of finite element facet interpolation for the current density. Several strengths appear with this approach. The method which is both light (we don't require to mesh the air) and precise, ensures highly the conservation of current and therefore leaves hope for a good performance in solving highly nonlinear problems.
