In this paper the authors present a new model for magnetostatic field problems - the modified fictitious magnetic monopole model, in which a new kind of scalar potential is used which is suitable for the whole region, including the distributed current region. In the FMMM the exciting action of the distributed current density has been replaced by that of a distributed fictitious magnetic monopole density, and the problem of loss of precision (subtraction of two large but similar quantities in the computer) has been solved by putting a magnetic shell into the coil and/or current-carrying conductor loop. According to the new model, the formulation of a magnetostatic problem has almost the same form as that of an electrostatic problem, thus the calculation of magnetostatic problems can be simplified significantly. The new model can also be regarded as a modification for the two-scalar potential model or for the T-Q method in magnetostatic cases. Calculation and test results of some examples of 3D magnetostatic problems are given to verify this new method.
