This book is designed to give the theoretical foundation needed by the new user of finite elements in electrical power engineering, and shows how the equipment designer can benefit from finite element analysis. It is divided into three parts; theory, modelling,and application of the finiteelement method. The first part outlines relevant electromagnetics, including treatment of boundaries, saturation and permanent magnets. It also shows how the finite element equations can be formulated. The presentation throughout is aimed at giving the reader a physical understanding of the process.The second part deals with special aspects of finite element modelling of engineering problems, including problem formulation, data generation and post processing and emphasises the importance of engineering judgement. The final part is an assembly of 'real' magnetic and electric field problemssolved by finite elements, including application to turbine generators, permanent magnet machines, switched reluctance drives, induction motors, transformers and bushings.

Editorial Reviews

'familiarity with electromagnetism as applied to electriv power machinery is an essential starting point for aredaer of this book.The subsequent mathematics in the text is relatively simple.Much of the book covers examples of the application of finite-element progammes to actual engineeringproblems, both electromagnetic and electrostatic which are described in some depth' Aslib
