Electromagnetic Induction: Transient Phenomena — Stationary Configuration

  • David Schieber
Part of the Springer Series in Electrophysics book series (SSEP, volume 16)


Four examples are analysed in this chapter. The first two deal with the field build up in an idealized ground and an idealized iron core, respectively. Although modeling is heavily resorted to, insight into the relevant processes underlying the field build-up is gained. Another section deals with the field switching in superconducting materials. Even though such a problem can be tackled only through quantum mechanics, a classical approach originally put forward by London and later extended by von Laue is applied. The interrelation between the London and Maxwell equations at field inception is accentuated in this section.
