Surface impedance boundary conditions (SIBCs) are used for analysis of a wide range of practical applications such as micro strips, transformers or electrical machines. In this work the SIBC was implemented with classical edge elements using the magnetic vector potential. As known, the SIBC is afflicted with errors when it is being used on curved surfaces and near corners and edges. For this reason this paper investigates the error of the SIBC on curved surfaces. Therefore, simulations have been carried out for different radii and frequencies. The simulation results of the SIBC formulation have been compared with the common formulation for eddy current regions. It will be shown, that the error of the SIBC depends on the relation of the radius to the skin depth. Results are presented and discussed by means of a canonical problem.
