In this work, a flexible discretization technique for the approximate solution of electromagnetic field problems with rotating parts, based on non-conforming (NC) interfaces of Nitsche-type, is investigated. This approach enables the use of edge elements of the first and second kind for the discretization of the magnetic vector potential without posing severe restrictions on gaps and overlaps of elements on both sides of the rotating interface. It improves the computational efficiency, compared to other NC interface formulations because no additional unknowns are introduced, and edge elements of different polynomial order can be coupled with this approach. The applicability is shown in two numerical examples, involving a cylindrical NC interface between a stationary and a rotating domain.
