The high-Tc superconducting (HTS) dynamo has recently been proposed as a new benchmark problem for the HTS modelling community. The benchmark geometry consists of a permanent magnet rotating past a stationary HTS wire in the open-circuit configuration and assumes for simplicity the 2D (infinitely long) case. See Benchmark #6 here.
In Ainslie et al, this benchmark problem has been implemented using several different methods, including H-formulation-based methods, coupled H–A and T–A formulations, the Minimum Electromagnetic Entropy Production method, and integral equation and volume integral equation-based equivalent circuit methods. Each of these approaches show excellent qualitative and quantitative agreement for the open-circuit equivalent instantaneous voltage and the cumulative time-averaged equivalent voltage, as well as the current density and electric field distributions within the HTS wire at key positions during the magnet transit.
