Some electrical equipment includes complex motions rather than simple rotational or translational motions. Examples of complex motions include the swinging motions of motors, actuators that move in race track shapes, and spherical motors. In JMAG, these complex motions can be expressed through the use of user subroutines.
This document describes a method of accounting for arbitrary motions in the moving parts of electrical equipment.
