# What is Transient Magnetic Analysis?

Transient Magnetic, is the study of magnetic fields due to time varying currents, typically caused by surges in currents. Similar to Magnetostatic and AC Magnetic, Maxwell’s displacement current that couples the electric and magnetic fields is assumed to be null.In Transient Magnetic analysis, the Gauss’s law for magnetism, i.e. divergence of magnetic flux density is null, and Faraday’s law,, i.e. the induced electromotive force (emf) in any closed circuit is equal to the time rate of change of the magnetic flux through the circuit, are invoked to compute the magnetic field and its related quantities due to permanent magnets and time varying electric currents and voltages. It has many practical applications, including:

- Switch on/off modes and failures in power electronic devices
- Saturation in steel cores
- NDT and NDE
- Inductive heating and hardening
- Induction machines
- Levitators
- Motors and generators
- Actuators
- Loud speakers
- Alternators
