This paper presents a deflation technique to improve the convergence of finite element (FE) analyses with infinite elements. In FE analyses of electromagnetic fields, large air regions must be discretized into FE meshes. This leads to increases in computational time. The infinite element in which electromagnetic fields in air region are accurately expressed has been introduced in order to solve this problem. However, when using the infinite element, convergence of iterative liner solvers deteriorates because the condition number of FE matrices becomes large. In this paper, a deflation technique to improve convergence of iterative solvers is introduced. Numerical examples show that the proposed technique can improve convergence characteristics in a magnetostatic analysis with finite and infinite elements.
