This paper investigates the effectiveness of the time domain parallelization in magnetic field analyses of practical electric machines. We propose an efficient procedure to parallelize transient as well as steady-state analyses by generalizing the formulation of the parallel time-periodic finite element method. The proposed method is called the time domain parallel finite element method (TDPFEM) because it can be applied to both transient and steady-state analyses. Additionally, we derive a special condition of the slip to reduce computational costs for steady-state analyses of induction motors by using a half-cycle polyphase time-periodic condition.
