Electrical Simulation for Design Innovation

Electrical engineers are driving the transition to electric vehicles, renewable energy systems, and mass electrification using the COMSOL Multiphysics® simulation software.

Introducing COMSOL Multiphysics®

Real-World Electrical Simulation Examples

The COMSOL Multiphysics® software user interface is always the same, regardless of engineering application and physics phenomena. By adding the AC/DC Module, engineers can predict, test, and optimize motors, drives, cables, transformers, power electronics, and more.
