"A method is presented to calculate the eddy current losses of a uniform disc with an opening in the center and excited by a circular current loopage First, the disc is subdivided into smaller concentric rings, then the self-inductances, the mutual inductances between these smaller rings, the mutual inductances between the excitation coil and the smaller rings, and the resistance of the rings are calculated. Next, the eddy current flowing in each ring is obtained by solving a complex matrix equation of the form [X] [I] = [V] where X is the impedance matrix, I is the eddy current matrix, and V is the induced voltage matrix. Finally, the power loss is determined from the resistance and the eddy current of each ring"--Abstract, page ii.
