This paper proposes a novel method for the improvement of the convergence to a steady state in time-periodic transient nonlinear eddy-current analyses. The proposed method, which is based on the time-periodic finite element method and the singularity decomposition-explicit error correction method, can extract poorly converged error components corresponding to the large time constants of an analyzed system. The correction of the extracted error components efficiently accelerates the convergence to a steady state. Numerical results verify the effectiveness of the proposed method.
