### Result

This **MANATEE software post processing** plots the **2D Fourier transform of tangential magnetic pressure ** as a 3d stem plot:

Contrary to the contour plot of radial magnetic forces given by plot_Ft_fft2, the scale is here linear and the largest magnetic forces are automatically labelled by identifying the closest analytical expression.

The largest force harmonics should occur at r=2p (twice the number of pole pairs), f=2fs (twice the fundamental electrical frequency), and at r=0 f=0 (static force). Note that **only the lowest force wavenumbers are important in magnetic noise and vibration process**.

To avoid that this large force damps all the other harmonics using a linear scale, one can automatically exclude the 0 and 2f components with

`Input.Plot.is_remove2f=1`

Input.Plot.is_remove0f=1

In some electrical machines, the 2f components might be important for noise and vibrations. For further plot options (e.g. change axis) see How to change plot options.

This representation of magnetic force harmonics, including their analytical expression, allows to confirm the physical origin of **magnetic noise in electrical machines**.
