The paper describes a 3D semi-analytical harmonic modeling technique that is capable of modeling eddy current distributions in segmented conducting structures, such as slitted conducting plates, and the associated magnetic fields. The spatially varying conductivity of a conducting region is incorporated into the solutions of magnetic-field quantities and the induced current density. The harmonic model is compared to results obtained with finite element analysis. An experimental setup is used to measure the field distribution above differently slitted conducting plates, in which eddy currents are induced by a coil. The measurement results are compared to simulation results, and the perturbations are analyzed.
