A geometric multigrid method for the efficient solution of time-harmonic 3-D eddy-current problems is presented. A finite element method with a scalar potential and a vector potential is used to describe the problem. Numerical examples show that using the right smoother in the multigrid, a good convergence of solutions, which does not deteriorate for bad quality meshes can be obtained. The computation time for solving the eddy-current problem of the multigrid method is much faster than that of the conjugate gradient method with incomplete Cholesky factorization as preconditioner.
