Magnetic Gear in 2D
Application ID: 14583
This model presents the transient modeling of a coaxial magnetic bearing using permanent magnets. The coaxial magnetic bearing is advantageous over the conventional mechanical gear mainly because of minimum noise, maintenance free operation, overload protection and physical isolation between the parts. The typical application of this device is for a high speed reduction ratio such as in wind turbines and electric vehicles. This model illustrates how to setup multiple rotating parts of the magnetic gears.
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.
