The paper describes an approach to teaching low-frequency electromagnetic CAD techniques to

undergraduate students pursuing a degree course in electrical engineering. At the laboratory

meetings, the problems are initially solved analytically. Upon this, students learn how to create the

numeric model and how to define the sequence of field problems that lead to the required solution.

Simulation tasks based on a force-producing electromagnet are used to introduce numeric techniques

to determine magnetic field distribution, evaluation of energy storage and generation of magnetic

forces. Magnetic forces are calculated by the classical and weighted versions of the method of

Maxwell stress tensor. The paper provides all the basic elements required for further exploration of

devices with longitudinal symmetry.
