Iron Sphere in a 13.56 MHz Magnetic Field

Application ID: 12835


An iron sphere is exposed to a spatially uniform, sinusoidally time-varying, background magnetic field. The frequency of the field is so high that the skin depth in the sphere is much smaller than the radius. At such high frequencies it is possible to model only the fields and induced currents on the surface of the sphere, thus avoiding the need for solving for the fields within the volume of the sphere, resulting in significantly reduced model size.
