Hi junaed.buet,

For Maxwell 2D transient designs with cylindrical rotational motion setup, the transient solver can
take into account the effects of skewed rotor slots by using a multi-slice model.

Continuous skew, the default, is used for induction motor rotors.

Step skew is used for permanent magnet rotors.

The left image(a) in your picture can be represented practically as a sliced model.

You can refer to the “Model Settings Tab > set skew model options” sections under maxwell help.
