This book chapter presents methods for simulation of electromagnetic problems related to MIECT. The main purpose of the presented methods is their application to development of the general LET systems. Furthermore, the main objective is the calculation the Lorentz forces which result from the interaction between permanent magnets and moving, nonmagnetic and electrically conductive objects. In general, numerical simulations of LET problems can be relatively time-consuming. Therefore, an additional emphasis was put on the development of fast semi-analytical and simplified numerical methods that allow solving general LET problems with satisfactory accuracy.
