To consider the changes of the magnetic field along the axial direction when simulating the operations of electric machines, a multislice circuit-field coupled finite element method is presented. The formulations reported allow unequal division of the axial length of the motor in the multislice model. The proposed circuit-field coupled technique provides a simple, general, and yet systematic way to couple arbitrary circuits with the magnetic field.
