Designing of End-winding Corona Protection of Generators by Help of Simulation

M. Wei[1], S. Grossman[1], J. Speck[1]
[1]Institute of Electrical Power Systems and High Voltage Engineering, Technische Universität Dresden, Dresden, Germany

The job of designing end-winding corona protection (ECP) system is one of the very important and complex phases for insulation configuration of high voltage rotating machines. This complexity stems on one hand from the highly nonlinear characteristics of the ECP material and on the other hand from the coupled multiphysics phenomena of the involved performance evaluation. Simulation based ECP ...

RFID-Enabled Temperature Sensor

I.M. Abdel-Motaleb[1], K. Allen [1]
[1]Department of Electrical Engineering, Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, IL, USA

The design of a RFID-enabled temperature sensor is described in this paper. In this sensor, a change in temperature causes structural beams to bend, which results in a proportional displacement of the plates of the capacitor. Plates\' displacement results, in turn, in changing the value of its capacitance. The capacitor of the sensor is coupled to the LC resonant network of a passive RFID tag. ...

Topographic Effects on Radio Magnetotelluric Simulations on Levees: Numerical Modeling for Future Comparison With Fields Results

R. Duval[1], C. Fauchard[1], R. Antoine[1]
[1]ERA23-IFSTTAR, Laboratoire des Ponts et Chaussées de Rouen, CETE-Normandie Centre, France

We study the topography influence of levees on the electric resistivity signal obtained with the Radio-Magnetotelluric method. Field measurements have been modeled with COMSOL, using the AC/DC and RF Modules. A levee situated in Orléans along the Loire river (France) has been considered in order to design a model tacking account of the skin depth and the incident wavelength, keeping a constant ...

Modeling the ELENA Electron Cooler with COMSOL Multiphysics® Software - new

G. Tranquille[1]
[1]CERN, Geneva, Switzerland

ELENA is a small cooler decelerator ring at CERN which will be built to increase substantially the number of usable antiprotons delivered to experiments for studies with antihydrogen and antiprotonic nuclei. COMSOL Multiphysics® software has been used to completely model the ELENA electron cooling device in 3D. We have taken advantage of the different physics-based modules of COMSOL ...

Modeling Directional Two Arm Archimedes Spiral Coils in the RF Electromagnet Range

A. Kalinowski, and J. Maguire
Naval Undersea Warfare Center/Div. Npt. , Newport, RI, USA

The paper addresses a class of problems for modeling and consequently simulating the electromagnetic field radiation pattern from a two arm Archimedes spiral coil. The performance of particular interest is knowledge of the radiated magnetic field H and electric field E in the neighborhood of the coil. The results in this paper illustrate how COMSOL is used to solve for the radiated ...

Dynamic Simulation of Electromagnets

Harald Biller
Continental Automotive Systems, Frankfurt, Germany

Harald Biller studied mathematics and physics at Darmstadt, London, and Würzburg. In 1999, he received his PhD from Stuttgart University, specializing in functional analysis, topology, and Lie theory. He worked as a lecturer at Darmstadt University until 2004, when he became a development engineer with the automotive supplier Continental, one of the leading producers of electronic brake and ...

MultiPhysics Analysis of Trapped Field in Multi-Layer YBCO Plates

P. Masson[1], and R. Meinke[1]
[1]Advanced Magnet Lab, Palm Bay, Florida, USA

Superconductors have the unique capability of trapping magnetic flux. This feature has the potential to enable and improve several applications including high power density rotating machines. Current material used as trapped flux magnets (TFM) is single domain YBCO that present numerous limitations interms of performance, stability and size. One way to overcome the limitations is to use thin ...

Muscle-Electrode Interface Simulation

A. Altamirano, C. Toledo, A. Vera, R. Muñoz, and L. Leija
Centro de Investigacion y Estudios Avanzados
Instituto Politecnico Nacional

In this article, the aim is to study different types and forms of electromyography (EMG) electrodes, for bipolar configuration, and the electric interface with muscle phantom. COMSOL Multiphysics allows modeling shapes and contact surfaces. Surface and needle electrodes will be modeled. A number of different trials and combinations will be presented; exploring different geometric shapes and ...

Numerical Simulation of a Human Body Subjected to Electrostatic Fields for Study of the Turin Shroud Body Image

[1]Dip. di Ingegneria Industriale, Università di Padova, Padova, Italy
[2]Politecnico di Bari, Bari, Italy

The TS (Turin Shroud) [1,2] is a fine linen fabric showing a not yet explainable [3] double body image of a scourged and crucified man stabbed on the side. Many hypotheses have been formulated without success [4] and perhaps the most reliable is one correlated to the Corona Discharge [5] that supposes the presence of an intense electric field, amplified by the presence of ionization induced by ...

Development of Magnetic Field Components for the Polarisation Option of the Neutron Spectrometer FOCUS

[1]Laboratory for Developments and Methods, Paul Scherrer Institut, Villigen, Switzerland
[3]Laboratory for Neutron Scattering, Paul Scherrer Institut, Villigen, Switzerland

We show a new, favourable space-saving method to host a neutron polarizer in the iron-containing monochromator shielding of a time-of-flight spectrometer for cold neutrons. In this poster you can learn e.g., how to create a robust, homogeneous, rectangular magnetic field (here realized by permanent magnet queues inside an iron tube). The time-of-flight spectrometer FOCUS at the spallation ...
