I have Maxwell 2D transient model of a motor in which I wish to calculate eddy current losses in stator winding conductors due to rotation of permanent magnets of rotor.
I have set set eddy effects in excitation menu but not defined any current direction. Eddy current direction shall be along the surface of the conductor and not along the length of the conductor.
The results abotained without specifying anyurrent direction and just setting eddy effects are not practical. I'm plotting solid loss.
Is it required to assign current direction of solid conductor to calculate its eddy current loss due to magnets?
Note In this model, band has been assigned motion with rated rpm and no excitation of windings is given rather no windings are present. Only solid conductors in slot are present.
