Abstract: A new method is presented for numerically solving the equations of electromagnetic induction in conducting materials using native, primary variables and not a magnetic vector potential. Solving for the components of the electric field allows the meshed domain to cover only the processed material rather than extend further out in space. Together with the finite volume discretisation this makes possible the seamless coupling of the electromagnetic solver within a multi-physics simulation framework. After validation for cases with known results, a 3-dimensional industrial application example of induction heating shows the suitability of the method for practical engineering calculations.
