Application ID: 970
Induced eddy currents and associated thermal loads is of interest in many high power AC applications. This example is of general nature and illustrates some of the involved physics as well as suitable modeling techniques in the AC/DC Module.
In this model a metallic plate is placed near a 50 Hz AC conductor. The resulting eddy current distribution in the plate depends on the conductivity and permeability of the plate.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
