If you want to learn how to model capacitive and resistive devices using a multiscale approach, then watch this webinar.

The COMSOL Multiphysics® software allows you to simulate a wide spectrum of electromagnetic systems, including the electric fields of capacitive devices and the magnetic fields and induced currents of motors and generators. This webinar focuses on when and how to couple electrical circuits to 2D and 3D space-dependent models using the AC/DC Module, an add-on product to COMSOL Multiphysics®.

The webinar includes a live demonstration of building a model of a resistor-capacitor (RC) network, in which the capacitor is modeled in space and the power supply and resistor are coupled through the Electrical Circuit interface. Using this multiscale approach, we not only visualize the electric field around the capacitor, but we also investigate its dynamic charging response.
