In an electrical machine, the Maxwell Tensor is widely used to compute global forces or local pressure along a surface in the air. This communication proposes to highlight the limits of the method with an academic case of slotless stator and rotor. In particular an analytic demonstration shows the existence of coefficients depending on the geometry and the wavenumber between the application of the Maxwell Tensor in the air-gap and the stator magnetic pressure.
