Abstract: This paper presents a new method for solving the integral equation of magnetic vector
potential on the surfaces of perfect conductor bodies. The definition of magnetic flux of
ideal coils implies that these are perfect conductors, so the normal component of
magnetic flux density on their surfaces is equal to zero, which is equivalent with
enforcing a zero normal component of magnetic vector potential A and the circulations
of A on any closed path on their boundaries, only those surrounding the holes being
equal to magnetic fluxes. A and curl A are described by a linear combination of special
vector functions associated with the surface nodes. The integral equation is projected on
these functions, as well as on another set of specialized functions orthogonal on the first
set. The small number of unknowns is a great advantage of the proposed method.
