This paper introduces the new FundemantalWave library which is included in the Modelica Standard Library 3.2. The presented Modelica package provides models and components of rotating electrical three phase machines. The presented electrical machine models are fully compatible with the original Machines library of the electrical domain but rely on the concept of the magnetic potential and magnetic flux fundamental waves. In this article; the connector concept; the components and electric machine models of the FundemantalWave package will be explained. Additionally; the didactic advantages and the flexibility of the proposed package in with respect to considering more enhanced and sophisticated effects will be discussed.
