Eddy Currents in Conductors
From a mathematical/physical point of view, the eddy current phenomena is governed by Maxwell’s equations. It is shown that eddy currents can be described by differential equations appropriately called diffusion equations. Eddy currents in conductors are investigated, as they establish themselves in power electronic circuits. Thepupose of this chapter is to derive the electromagnetic theory of eddy currents on which subsequent analyses are based.
