AC/DC Training (2 Days Online)

September 6–7, 2022 9:00 a.m. CEST

Back to Events Calendar

During the 2-day COMSOL Multiphysics® AC/DC training course, you will develop a strong foundation for your future electromagnetics and multiphysics modeling work. We will focus on simulations with the AC/DC Module involving electrostatics, electric currents, and magnetic fields for applications in the modeling of resistive and capacitive devices, coils, magnets, motors, cables, electromagnetic actuation, and other areas. The coupling of electromagnetic fields to other physics, such as heat transfer and structural mechanics, will also be covered.

To teach this course, we use a combination of guided hands-on training, theoretical and practical lecture, and self-guided exercises. The goal is to immerse you in all of the main aspects of using COMSOL Multiphysics® and the AC/DC Module, so that you feel comfortable working with the software. You will leave the course feeling confident that you are correctly solving your electromagnetics problems with COMSOL Multiphysics®.


  • Electric current and electrostatic modeling
  • Modeling coils, inductors, transformers, cables, capacitors, sensors and EMI/EMC
  • Modeling permanent magnets and linear and nonlinear magnetic materials
  • Calculation of force and torque in electromagnetic systems
  • Modeling of rotating electrical machinery and linear electromagnetic actuators
  • Coupling the FEA model with a lumped electrical circuit model
  • Stationary, frequency-response, and transient analysis of electromagnetic systems
  • The boundary element method (BEM) in electrostatics and magnetostatics
  • Multiphysics modeling: Joule heating and induction heating
  • Techniques to improve model performance by exploring symmetry, periodic conditions, and various solver options

Suggested Background

This course assumes some familiarity with the basic concepts of electromagnetics. To get the most out of the training, you should either have been using COMSOL Multiphysics® in the past or attended a course such as the COMSOL Multiphysics® Essential Training course.


The fee for this 2-day online course is 11.900 SEK per person. Course material, and model files are included in the course.


To register, please complete the form below. Seats are limited and admission is on a first-come, first-served basis. A 14-day free trial of COMSOL Multiphysics® will be sent to the participants. Remember to install the software properly in good time for the course. Please refer to the system requirements page to see the minimum configuration required to install the COMSOL® software.
