COMSOL Day: Power & Energy

May 5, 2020 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

View All COMSOL Day Locations

Join us for COMSOL Day: Power & Energy in Zürich for a full day of energy-related modeling and interaction with the simulation experts in the electrical power industry. Learn how COMSOL Multiphysics® can accelerate research and development of high voltage equipment, smart grids and transformers.

You will get an overview of the electromagnetic modeling capabilities in the COMSOL® software and will see how you can streamline the simulation workflow by building and deploying applications.

There will be demo and support stations where you can discuss your individual modeling needs with COMSOL technical staff members.

You will find the preliminary program below, which is subject to minor changes. The final program will be announced within the next few weeks.

The event is free of charge. Sign up today to reserve a seat.


Welcoming Remarks

The design of cables and busbars can benefit largely from multiphysics simulation. Get an overview of the capabilities for modeling direct- and alternating-current systems and their resistive, capacitive, inductive, and electrothermal behavior.

Coffee Break
Invited Speakers

Simulations can provide important insight into the context of EMC and EMI testing. Learn about best practices for simulating the shielding of static and dynamic electric and magnetic fields, including the use of nonlinear materials, thin layers, and the modeling of charge relaxation effects.

Break for Lunch

The quality of transformers is characterized by effects covering a wide range of physics: electromagnetic efficiency, electric and magnetic losses, stray fields, heating, and even noise emission. Discover how multiphysics simulation can help you predict the performance of transformers.

Invited Speakers
Coffee Break

The basic requirement for the design of electrical machines like motors, generators, and brakes is a fundamental understanding of EM forces and torque. In this session, we compare several methods of calculation regarding their accuracy and suitability.


COMSOL Speakers

Sven Friedel
Sven Friedel established the COMSOL branch office in Switzerland in 2004. He received his PhD in physics from the University of Leipzig in the field of inverse electromagnetic problems. There, he also taught lectures in geomagnetism and volcanology before joining the Institute of Geotechnical Engineering at ETH Zürich as a postdoctoral researcher.
Roman Obrist
Roman Obrist is a technical sales and applications manager at COMSOL. He received his MSc in electrical engineering from the University of Applied Sciences Rapperswil (HSR). There, he was a scientific researcher and project leader in the Computational and Applied Electromagnetics Group, dealing with customer-related research and teaching tasks.
