Cable Tutorial Series

In this set of eight tutorial models and associated documentation, you can investigate the resistive, capacitive, inductive, and thermal properties of a standard three-core lead-sheathed XLPE HVAC submarine cable with twisted magnetic armor (500 mm2, 220 kV). The series includes a 2D, 2D ... Read More

E-Core Transformer

This is the transient model of a single phase E-core transformer using a Multi-Turn Coil Domain. The model includes the effect of a nonlinear B-H curve in the core and shows how to connect the transformer model to the external circuits using Electric Circuit interface. The simulation is ...

Motor Tutorial Series

This series of models demonstrates how to do advanced electric machine modeling with COMSOL Multiphysics® — in 2D, 2.5D, and full 3D with end effects included. It investigates the performance of a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor, as is often used in modern electric vehicles. ... Read More

Permanent Magnet

As an example of a magnetostatic problem, consider how to model a horseshoe-shaped permanent magnet. One way is to treat the entire magnet as a ferromagnetic material, where the two end sections are defined as being pre-magnetized in different and opposite directions. Read More

Heating Circuit

Small heating circuits find use in many applications. For example, in manufacturing processes, they heat up reactive fluids. The device in this tutorial example consists of an electrically resistive layer deposited on a glass plate. The layer results in Joule heating when a voltage is ... Read More

Magnetic Field of a Helmholtz Coil

A Helmholtz coil is a parallel pair of identical circular coils spaced one radius apart and wound so that the current flows through both coils in the same direction. This winding results in a uniform magnetic field between the coils with the primary component parallel to the axes of the ... Read More

High Voltage Insulator

This example demonstrates how to use the Electrostatic interface to calculate the surface electric field of a typical high-voltage insulator. It is shown that the inhomogeneity and the maximum of the surface electric field are greatly reduced with the installation of the grading rings. ... Read More

Computing Capacitance

A capacitor, in its simplest form, is a two terminal electrical device that stores electric energy when a voltage difference is applied across the terminals. The stored electric energy is proportional to the applied voltage squared and is quantified by the capacitance of the device. This ... Read More

Permanent Magnet Motor in 3D

Permanent magnet (PM) motors are used in many high-end applications, such as in electric and hybrid vehicles. An important design limitation is that the magnets are sensitive to high temperatures, which can occur through heat losses caused by currents, particularly eddy currents. In ... Read More

Axial Magnetic Bearing Using Permanent Magnets

Permanent magnet bearings are used in turbomachinery, pumps, motors, generators, and flywheel energy storage systems, to mention a few application areas; contactless operation, low maintenance, and the ability to operate without lubrication are some key benefits compared to conventional ...
