Inductive Heating of a Copper Cylinder

The induced currents in a copper cylinder produce heat that in turn change the electrical conductivity. This means that the field propagation has to be solved simultaneously with the heat transfer through the cylinder and surrounding system. This model shows this coupling between eddy ... Read More

Voltage Induced in a Coil by a Moving Magnet

A magnet moving axially through the center of a coil will induce a voltage across the coil terminals. One practical application of this is in shaker flashlights, where the flashlight is vigorously shaken back and forth, causing a magnet to move through a multi-turn coil, which provides ... Read More

Modeling of a 3D Inductor

Inductors are used in many applications for low pass filtering or for impedance matching of predominantly capacitive loads. They are used in a wide frequency range from near static up to several MHz. An inductor usually has a magnetic core to increase the inductance, while keeping its ... Read More

Static Field Modeling of a Halbach Rotor

This model presents the static field modeling of an outward flux focusing magnetic rotor using permanent magnets. This magnetic rotor is also often called a Halbach rotor. The use of permanent magnets in rotatory devices such as motors, generators and magnetic gears is increasing. The ... Read More

High Voltage Ferrite Core Transformer

This transformer model demonstrates how to extract the magnetizing and leakage inductances, along with parasitic capacitances. In this case, due to very high turns ratio, the secondary parasitic capacitance has a dominant effect when referred to primary. In experimental measurements, the ... Read More

Modeling Piezoelectric Devices as Both Transmitters and Receivers

Piezoelectric devices are widely used as sources to generate sound waves or receivers to detect acoustic signals. In applications such as ultrasound imaging and nondestructive testing, the same transducer can be used as a transmitter to send a source signal and receiver to detect ... Read More

Frequency Domain Modeling of a Capacitor

A capacitor with an applied sinusoidally time-varying voltage difference is modeled. A wide frequency range is considered and the impedance of the device is computed. Solver accuracy is addressed. The relationship between the frequency domain impedance and the steady-state capacitance ... Read More

Eddy Currents

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 ... Read More

Multiturn Coil Above an Asymmetric Conductor Plate

This model solves the Testing Electromagnetic Analysis Methods (TEAM) problem 7, “Asymmetrical Conductor with a Hole”—a benchmark problem concerning the calculation of eddy currents and magnetic fields produced when an aluminum conductor is placed asymmetrically above a multi-turn coil ...
