The mutual inductance and induced currents between a single turn primary and twenty turn secondary coil in a concentric coplanar arrangement is computed using a frequency domain model. The secondary coil is modeled using a homogenized approach which does not explicitly consider each turn of the coil. The results are compared against analytic predictions.
The induced currents in a copper cylinder produce heat that in turn change the electrical conductivity. This means that the field propagation has to be solved simultaneously with the heat transfer through the cylinder and surrounding system. This model shows this coupling between eddy currents and heat transfer as a tutorial example.
An AC coil surrounding a metal cylinder induces eddy currents in the cylinder. The driving current in the coil can be specified in two ways: either as an external current density or as equivalent surface currents. In the first case, the skin effect can be studied by giving the coil a non-zero conductivity.
Particle Tracing is used in conjunction with magnetic fields and pressure-driven microfluidic flow to calculate the separation of red blood cells from blood plasma using magnetophoresis. An array of soft iron rectangles on either side of a microfluidics channel modifies the magnetic field induced by a pair of neodymium permanent magnets. The resulting strong gradients in the magnetic field ...
This model considers a square inductor that is used for LC bandpass filters in MEMS systems. The simulation calculates the self-inductance. The first step in the modeling is to compute the currents in the inductor. These currents are the source for the magnetic flux computations, carried out in a second step.
A cylindrical magnet falling through a copper tube induces eddy currents on the tube walls, which in turn, create a magnetic field that opposes the magnetic field of the magnet and induces a braking force that opposes the motion of the magnet. This model computes the velocity of the magnet after it is dropped, as it reaches its terminal velocity at which the magnetic braking force equals the ...
A capacitor with an applied sinusoidally time-varying voltage difference is modeled. A wide frequency range is considered and the impedance of the device is computed. Solver accuracy is addressed. The relationship between the frequency domain impedance and the steady-state capacitance and resistance of the device is discussed.
A transient model of a capacitor is solved in combination with an external electrical circuit. The finite element model of the capacitor is combined with a circuit model of a voltage source and a resistor. A step change in voltage is applied, and the transient current through the capacitor is computed and compared to the analytic result.
This is a tutorial how to set up electric machinery in 3D using a combination of the magnetic fields and magnetic fields no currents interfaces.
This model shows a setup of two parallel wires with a constant current running through both. Their cross-sections are successively reduced until a set force per unit length is reached.
