E-Core Transformer

This is the transient model of a single phase E-core transformer using a Multi-Turn Coil Domain. The model includes the effect of a nonlinear B-H curve in the core and shows how to connect the transformer model to the external circuits using Electric Circuit interface. The simulation is performed for two different cases; the first one with a unity turn ratio and second one with a turn ratio of ...

Relativistic Diverging Electron Beam

When modeling the propagation of charged particle beams at high currents and relativistic speeds, the space charge and beam current create significant electric and magnetic forces that tend to expand and focus the beam, respectively. The *Charged Particle Tracing* interface uses an iterative procedure, in this example, to efficiently compute the strongly coupled particle trajectories and ...

Small-Signal Analysis of an Inductor

If an inductor's magnetic material is nonlinear, then the inductance depends on the current passing through it. This model consists of an inductor with a nonlinear magnetic core, where the small-signal inductance is simulated as a function of current. The model also investigates how the small-signal inductance depends on the DC current.

Magnetic Signature of a Submarine

A vessel traveling on the surface or under water gives rise to detectable local disturbances in the Earth’s magnetic field. These disturbances can be used to trigger weapon systems. The magnetic signature of a ship can be reduced by generating a counteracting magnetic field of suitable strength and direction based on prior knowledge of the magnetic properties of the vessel. This model ...

Computing Capacitance

A capacitor, in its simplest form, is a two terminal electrical device that stores electric energy when a voltage difference is applied across the terminals. The stored electric energy is proportional to the applied voltage squared and is quantified by the capacitance of the device. This model introduces a model of a simple capacitor, the electric field and device capacitance are solved for ...

Iron Sphere in a 20 kHz Magnetic Field

An iron sphere is exposed to a spatially uniform, sinusoidally time-varying, background magnetic field. The frequency of the field is such that there skin depth is smaller than the sphere radius. The induced currents in the sphere and the perturbation to the background field are computed. Proper meshing of domains with significant skin effect is addressed.

Electric Shielding

Many applications involve simulating the electromagnetic behavior of relatively thin material in voluminous domains. To save computer memory and processing time, the thin materials can be treated differently by resolving them with 3D meshes. Here, the modeling domain is a box filled with air containing an electrode. The sides of the box are insulated while the top has a potential and the ...

Iron Sphere in a 60 Hz Magnetic Field

An iron sphere is exposed to a spatially uniform, sinusoidally time-varying, background magnetic field. The frequency of the field is low enough such that the skin depth is larger than the radius of the sphere. A reduced field formulation is used to impose the background field. Two approaches for solving this problem are shown. The induced currents in the sphere and the perturbation to the ...

Generator in 2D

In this model, a rotor with permanent magnets and a nonlinear magnetic material rotates within a stator of the same magnetic material. The generated voltage in windings around the stator is calculated as a function of time. COMSOL Multiphysics models the rotation with assemblies and identity pairs. The nonlinearity of the magnetic material is also taken into account using an interpolation ...

Multi-Turn Coil Above an Asymmetric Conductor Plate

This model solves the Testing Electromagnetic Analysis Methods (TEAM) problem 7, “Asymmetrical Conductor with a Hole”—a benchmark problem concerning the calculation of eddy currents and magnetic fields produced when an aluminum conductor is placed asymmetrically above a multi-turn coil carrying a sinusoidally varying current. The simulation results at specified positions in space are compared ...
