Effective Nonlinear Magnetic Curves Calculator

The Effective Nonlinear Magnetic Curves Calculator application is a companion to the *Effective Nonlinear Constitutive Relations* functionality. Magnetic-based interfaces in the AC/DC Module support the Effective HB/BH Curve material model that can be used to approximate the behavior of a nonlinear magnetic material in a frequency domain simulation without the additional computational cost of a ...

Magnetic Stiffness of an Axial Magnetic Bearing in 3D

The model illustrate the technique to calculate the magnetic stiffness in a 3D geometry of a permanent magnet axial magnetic bearing. The *Magnetic Fields* physics is used to model the bearing and compute the magnetic forces. The *Deformed Geometry* and *Sensitivity* physics are used to compute the magnetic stiffness. This model is featured and explained in much greater detail in the following ...

Electromagnetic Plunger with Stopper

This is a transient model of an electromagnetic plunger with stopper restricting the linear motion. The model consists of a magnetic core, nonmagnetic guider, multi-turn coil, nonmagnetic stopper/blocker, and magnetic plunger attached to the spring and damper at the far end. The electromagnetic force on the plunger due to the transient current in the coil is calculated using the Maxwell stress ...

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.

Electrodynamic Bearing

This model illustrates the working principle of a passive electrodynamic bearing. An electrically conducting rotor rotating in a magnetic field produced by a permanent magnets induces eddy currents on the conducting rotor. The eddy currents, in turn, produce a magnetic field that opposes the magnetic fields by the magnets and induces a force that opposes the motion of the rotor. The radial ...

Tubular Permanent Magnet Generator

This tutorial shows how to model the tubular permanent magnet generator in 2D axisymmetry. The generator consists of a modular stationary stator and moving/oscillating slider. The stator is made of three-phase multiturn windings and an iron core. The slider is made of permanent magnets and iron spacers. The open circuit voltage in the three-phase stator windings due to the periodic motion of the ...

Winding Designer for Electrical Machines

You can use this simulation app as a guide on how to automate selections using the Application Builder. In the example app, the selection algorithm depends on the relationship between the electrical and mechanical angles, which are generally used in the design of windings in electrical machines. Get more details in our blog post: [How to Automate Winding Design in Electrical Machines with an ...

Magnetic Prospecting of Ore Deposits

Magnetic prospecting is a geological exploration method that is applicable to certain types of iron ore deposits, in particular those made up of magnetite and hematite. The method consists of measuring the magnetic anomalies (changes in the earth's magnetic field) due to the presence of magnetic ores. The Magnetic Prospecting app simulates the effect of a deposit of magnetic ore on the earth's ...

External Material, AC/DC Module, General HB/BH relation

The AC/DC magnetic interfaces now support material models defined in external C code. A new way to specify user-defined material models is included in COMSOL Multiphysics version 5.2. You can now access external material functions, written in C code, which have been compiled into a shared library. By writing a wrapper function in C code, you can also use material functions written in another ...

Topology Optimization of a Magnetic Circuit

This model presents an example of topology optimization of the magnetic circuit of a loudspeaker driver. Using topology optimization, we are able to find the shape of a nonlinear iron yoke in order to maximize its performance and, at the same time, minimize the weight such that it is smaller than the original design.
