Abstract

The double-layer approach (DLA) possesses superior features for the analysis of static electromagnetic problems. In this article, dealing with the magnetostatic analysis, we introduce two kinds of double layers: the first one on the surface of the magnetic body and the second one on the cut-surface within the exciting current loop. From the double layers on the cut-surface, we were able to derive a novel, unified exciting potential, which facilitates the treatment of any magnetostatic problem, including multiply connected problems. Furthermore, in this article, we use for the first time DLA for the analysis of magnetic forces acting on the magnetic bodies. The law of action and reaction provides a self-check function within DLA, enabling thus the simple and reliable tool for the confirmation if the computed results are adequate and accurate. This improved, DLA-based approach for the force analysis together with the introduced 'action-reaction' principle for the self-checking of the force calculation are, to the authors' best knowledge, not known in the scientific community so far. Finally, we would like to emphasize that the presented DLA enables accurate, self-checked, generic analysis of the real-world devices, providing advanced treatment of both geometrical singularities (edges, corners) and materials used (high permeability, nonlinearities).
