Induction Heating of a Steel Billet

This app demonstrates the following: Geometry parts and parameterized geometries Using tables for user input parameters Visualization on a 2D cross-section of a 3D geometry Improved visualization and user experience when a geometry object (the air object) is hidden. Induction heating ... Read More

Computing the Resistance of a Wire

Every electrical device has some resistance. That is, when a voltage difference is applied across any two terminals of the device, there will be a directly proportional current flow. This model demonstrates how to compute the resistance of a short section of copper wire. The convergence ... Read More

Inductance Matrix Calculation of PCB Coils

This model demonstrates how to use the Magnetic Fields, Currents Only interface together with the Stationary Source Sweep with Initialization study to compute the inductance matrix of PCB coils with a number of 12. Read More

Self-Inductance and Mutual Inductance of a Single Conductor and a Helical Coil

The mutual inductance and induced currents between a single turn primary and twenty turn secondary coil in a concentric coplanar arrangement is computed using a frequency domain model. Each turn of the secondary coil is modeled explicitly. The results are compared against analytic ... Read More
