TL;DR: In this paper, an analytical model for double-sided permanent-magnet radial-flux eddy-current couplers is presented that can easily handle complex geometries.
Abstract: Analytical models are widely utilised in the study and performance prediction of electric machines by providing fast, yet accurate solutions. By combining conventional magnetic equivalent circuit techniques with Faraday's and Ampere's laws, an analytical model for double-sided permanent-magnet radial-flux eddy-current couplers is presented that can easily handle complex geometries. The proposed approach is also capable of taking the three-dimensional (3D) impacts into account. The characteristics and design considerations are also studied for a surface-mounted permanent-magnet structure. Moreover, the 2D and 3D finite-element methods are employed to verify the results, as well as transient study of the device under two different scenarios. Finally, sensitivity analysis is carried out to investigate the influence of the design variables on the characteristics of the coupler, which provides valuable information in the current and future studies of such devices.

TL;DR: In this paper, the electric and magnetic fields of a point charge moving with constant velocity are derived from retarded integrals representing solutions of Maxwell's equations for electric and magnetic fields of arbitrary time-dependent charge and current distributions.
Abstract: Equations for the electric and magnetic fields of a point charge moving with constant velocity are derived from retarded integrals representing solutions of Maxwell’s equations for electric and magnetic fields of arbitrary time‐dependent charge and current distributions. In contrast to conventional derivations, the derivations presented here are based exclusively on general electromagnetic field equations and do not make use of retarded potentials or relativistic equations. The derivations lead to some notable conclusions concerning the electric and magnetic fields of an arbitrary charge distribution moving with constant velocity.

TL;DR: In this article, the fundamental equation for the A-phi method is formulated using Maxwell's equations and the continuity equation for electric charge, and the validity of the proposed formulation is verified by experiment.
Abstract: The fundamental equation for the A- phi method is formulated using Maxwell's equations and the continuity equation for electric charge. Maxwell's equations necessarily involve the continuity equation under the assumption that the displacement current can be ignored. However, in the finite element method, an acceptable solution cannot be obtained if the continuity equation is not treated as an independent equation. The situation is clarified theoretically, and the physical significance is discussed. A model of a conducting liquid in a moving magnetic field is analyzed, and the validity of the proposed formulation is verified by experiment. >
