This paper describes a large-scale 3D magnetostatic analysis using the Domain Decomposition Method (DDM). To improve the convergence of the interface problem of DDM, a DDM approach based on the Conjugate Residual (CR) method or the MINimal RESidual (MINRES) method is proposed. The CR or MINRES method improved the convergence rate and showed more stable convergence behavior in solving the interface problem than the Conjugate Gradient (CG) method, and reduced computation time for a large-scale problem with about 10 million degrees of freedom.
