### Analysis of a Boost Converter Inductor

MagNet's suitability is demonstrated by using it to analyze the inductor of a 27 kW boost converter that steps-up an electric vehicle's battery voltage from 200 V to 200 - 650 V range.

### 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.

### Demonstrating a variation of the MagLev suspension system

The performance of this machine is simulated using MagNet’s Transient 3d with Motion solver. The vehicle, consisting of the aluminum channel with payload, is given six degrees of freedom so that it is free to rotate about the roll, pitch and yaw axes and so that it is also free to move in all three dimensions (up-down, left-right, forward-backward). The vehicle is initially resting on supports 1 cm above the track, which is 0.5 cm below its equilibrium position when the track is energized.

### Optimization Of A Die Press (T.E.A.M. Problem 25)

In this device, the objective is to find the size of the inner die mold and the shape of the outer die mold in order to obtain the desired magnetic field in the cavity shown in the figure. Using MagNet and OptiNet, the optimal radius for the inner mold and the elliptical shape for the outer mold can be determined given specified design objectives.

### Rare Earth MRI Magnet Assembly

Magnetic Resonance Imaging [MRI] is a non-invasive mechanism for assessing the nature of materials. Whether one desires to monitor the fat content in a cookie mixture, or review potential structural damage to a human joint, MRI equipment is readily available.
