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.

Battery Charging with Maximal Peak Power Tracking

A maximal peak power tracking (MPPT) example for wind power plant is implemented in this example. The load is a battery that is subjected to a variable speed realistic wind profile. The system simulated consist of the following components; a wind turbine, a planetary gear system, a generator, a load (battery) and a 3-phase bridge regulator for the generator.

Bearing friction damping in a stepper motor

This stepper motor consists of a stator with eccentric pole faces and a rotor made of samarium cobalt permanent magnet that is magnetized in a fixed direction. The rotor rotates in steps of 180 degrees. Each step in the rotor is due to a short pulse from a current source

Brushed Motors Design and Analysis

The MotorSolve DCM module provides finite element based analysis for the design of DC brushed motors. The versatility of the DCM module is in its ability to create motors from templates and its advanced electromgnetic analysis capability. The analysis can be used to get standard DC motor characteristics or to get more advanced quantities such as waveforms, harmonic analysis of the waveforms, time-averaged quantities, Field distributions and many more.

Calculating the steady-state ohmic and core losses in a BLDC Motor with temperature effects

The goal of the analysis is to predict the steady-state temperature of the motor and verify if the rotor magnets will demagnetize. A 3d transient thermal analysis coupled to a 3d transient with motion magnetic analysis is used to calculate the steady-state temperature distribution after a few hours of operation; the simulation will determine the change in performance due to increased winding resistance and degraded magnetic properties.

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.
