Abstract: The slow convergence of the incomplete Cholesky preconditioned conjugate gradient (CG) method, applied to solve the system representing a magnetostatic finite element model, is caused by the presence gf a few little eigenvalues in the spectrum of the system matrix. The corresponding eigenvectors reflect large relative differences in permeability. A significant convergence improvement is achieved by supplying vectors that span approximately the partial eigenspace formed by the slowly converging eigenmodes, to a deflated version of the CG algorithm. The numerical experiments show that even roughly determined eigenvectors already bring a significant convergence improvement The deflating technique is embedded in the simulation procedure for a permanent magnet DC machine.
