    Abstract

    The multi-slice method allows approximation of the 3-D phenomena without carrying out a full 3-D analysis, e.g., in skewed radial flux electrical machines. The idea is to divide a 3-D machine into several 2-D finite-element models along the axis, connected by electrical circuits. Here we show how the multi-slice method is perfect for parallel computation; the computation efficiency is close to that of 2-D models in modern parallel hardware. The results are shown to agree with 3-D computation and experimental results.
