30 minute presentation
Fast and accurate iron loss prediction is desirable to designers of large ferromagnetic devices. This webinar will use a power transformer to show that MagNet 7.8 AC/time-harmonic solvers can meet this need effectively.
The time-harmonic predicted iron loss, is practically the same as that of a transient solve, with a 90% reduction in solution time. The webinar will also introduce controlled switches that allow complex controls within MagNet 7.8, without the need of a secondary circuit simulator. A boost converter will serve as an example.
