This validation case compares the radial airgap flux computed by the three magnetic models of MANATEE (permeance/mmf, subdomain, FEMM) for skewed machines for the 2 skew computation methods:

  • type_skew=1: average flux along axial direction
  • type_skew=2: full 3D flux density

3 machines are used, one with no skew, one with a skewed stator and one with a skewed rotor. One can see that all results are consistent.
