To analyze the mechanical dynamic characteristics of electromechanical system, we present a new and fast method using the reduced modeling technique for the levitated conductor. As of now, to solve this electromechanical system, the finite element method (FEM) or the boundary element method (BEM) employing the finite difference time-stepping scheme is used. These approaches, however, need too much solving time because the system matrix equation should be solved at each time step. Additionally, when the operation condition is changed or it needs more incremental steps, the system should be solved from the beginning again. To reduce the solving time, we use the circuit parameters of self- and mutual inductances which are evaluated using the FEM and the conductor segmentation. The formulated ordinary differential equations are solved using the fourth-order Runge-Kutta method. To show validity and usefulness of this proposed method, the TEAM Workshop Problem 28 model is tested, and the results of the experiment and time-stepping FEM are compared to this new method.
