Title

3-D Static Force Benchmark (T.E.A.M. Problem 20)

This rig is made from a steel center pole and yoke. The center pole is surrounded by a copper coil excited by a DC current. This problem shows the ability of MagNet for SOLIDWORKS to solve Static Magnetic Problem involving force and magnetic field calculations.

Asymmetrical Conductor with a Hole (T.E.A.M. Problem 7)

This problem consists of a thick aluminum plate with a square hole placed to the side. A current driven coil is placed unsymmetrically over the aluminum plate. A sinusoidal current is used to drive the coil at two different frequencies.

Bath Plate with Two Holes (T.E.A.M. Problem 3)

The Bath Plate problem consists of a conducting ladder with a current driven coil hovering over it. The problem consists of calculating the magnetic field along the center vertical line of the model just over the surface of the plate.

Circuit Capability in MagNet for SOLIDWORKS

Electromagnetic devices are widely used across most industrial applications to strategically to do some form of work. Efficient use of these devices requires that they be influenced with a desired excitation. Most often the generation of this excitation requires the use of a circuit to control the specific characteristics, timing and overall profile.

Eddy Current NDT and Deep Flaws (T.E.A.M. Problem 27)

In this example, a sheet of aluminum contains a screw hole with a flaw inside. The flaw is to be detected using the eddy current method. A coil is stationary above the screw hole, which generates eddy currents inside of the aluminum. Two diametrically opposed Hall effect sensors measure the horizontal differential flux density at the surface of the screw hole.

Impact of Materials on Reducing Stray Losses (T.E.A.M. Problem 21b)

This examples involves three different configurations of plates: one magnetic and one non-magnetic plate, two magnetic plates and two non-magnetic plates. The flux density is measured along contours on the plates’ surface and compared with measured results.

Impact of Shield Thickness on Reducing Stray Losses (T.E.A.M. Problem 21c)

There are two types of shields in this benchmark: one single silicon steel sheet or copper plate (M1 or EM1), or three separated silicon steel sheets or plates M2 or EM2). The transformer wall is made out of magnetic steel.

Nonlinear Time-Transient in Switched Reluctance Motors (T.E.A.M. Problem 24)

This is a test rig configuration similar to a switched reluctance machine. It is made of solid medium-carbon steel and mounted in a nonmagnetic cage which can rotate about a stainless steel shaft. This is a nonlinear transient problem, which was simulated using MagNet for SOLIDWORKS transient solver.
