This work reviews and compares different methods of solving electromagnetic problems by means of the Finite Element Method (FEM). In order to justify the numerical developments, a brief review on the physics of the problem is given. Numerical techniques are classified into two main categories:

1. methods that use scalar and vectorial potentials


2. methods that solve directly the Maxwell equations. Moreover, in engineering applications, the design of electromagnetic devices requires accurate calculation of magnetic forces. Therefore, different methods for computing the magnetic forces are analyzed in this paper. Finally, several magnetostatic examples, that range from academic problems to industrial applications, are included in order to illustrate some of the described methods.
