Abstract: This paper shows the usefulness of three-dimensional electromagnetic finite-element software based on the magnetic vector potential and the time integrated electric scalar potential. Both potentials are used to analyse a wide range of electrical and electronics products. Example applications of the software include transformers, bus bars, transistor circuits exciting electromagnetic fields, microwave cavities and waveguides, and antennas.

Keywords: electrical industry; electronics industry; finite element software; industrial applications; magnetic vector potential; time integrated electric scalar potential; finite element method; FEM.
