Abstract

In this paper, a magnetostatic solver for linear and nonlinear soft-magnetic material characteristics, a time-harmonic eddy current solver, and the corresponding function-based error estimates are implemented in an established adaptive isogeometric analysis framework. The simplified truncated hierarchical B-spline basis functions are investigated on the multipatch geometry of a magnetic circuit, as they offer several beneficial properties, including a drastic reduction of the number of degrees of freedom compared to the references under uniform refinement. Global error estimate and global parameters convergence are illustrated for different refinement strategies and polynomial orders. Finally, the computational effort is analyzed.
