The standard finite volume method is featured by the simple shape of the control volume. Nevertheless, in previous works, we have demonstrated its efficiency in modeling of electromagnetic devices. On the other hand, the method consumes too much time in the case of complex geometry because the simplicity of the discretization element shape. In order to overcome this problem, we propose in this paper a new 3D unstructured finite volume method. The method is applied to solve an electromagnetic levitation problem.
