[1] University of Zaragoza, Zaragoza, Spain

This work presents the analysis of a wireless power transfer system consisting of two coupled coils and ferrite slabs acting as flux concentrators. The study makes use of Finite Element Method (FEM) simulations to predict the key performance indicators of the system such as coupling, quality factor and winding resistance. The simulations results were compared against experimental measurements on ...

A model of a cell counter sensor based on Impedance Spectroscopy (IS) has been implemented in COMSOL Multiphysics. The cell counter is a silicon-based microdevice consisting in 3D electrodes placed in a wide microchannel: cells flow in the microchannel through the electrodes to be detected. The model allows to evaluate the functionality of the device depending on geometrical parameters and ...

J. Güdelhöfer[1], R. Gottkehaskamp[1], A. Hartmann[1]
[1]Department of Electrical Machines and Electromagnetic Field Theory, University of Applied Sciences Düsseldorf, Düsseldorf, Germany

This paper shows how a time-dependent and non-linear simulation of the dynamic operation behavior of an induction machine is executed by means of the \"Rotating Machinery\" interface from COMSOL Multiphysics 4.2a. The two-dimensional FEM model is connected to electrical circuits by coupling the physics \"Rotating Machinery\" and \"Electrical Circuit\" interfaces. These circuits include the ...

Transient Analysis of an EMVD Using COMSOL Multiphysics

G.E. Stebner[1], C. Hartwig[1]
[1]Ostfalia University, IMEC, Wolfenbüttel, Germany

In this paper an EMVD (Electro-Mechanical Valve Drive) for combustion engines is redesigned to achieve a fail-safe behavior when power loss occurs. The AC/DC Module and the Moving Mesh interface of COMSOL Multiphysics 4.2 are used to build up a transient model. This model also includes the calculation of eddy currents.

Trapping DNA Molecules in Fluids Using Electrokinetic Effects Generated by Different Electrode Geometries

[1]Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani - Hyderabad Campus, Hyderabad, Telangana, India

In this paper we present results of simulations done to predict the behavior of a system consisting of DNA molecules in an aqueous medium under the combined effect of AC Electroosmosis and Dielectrophoresis (DEP). ACEO is caused by the movement of fluid particles under the influence of the electric field. DEP is caused by polarization of the DNA particle. Two different electrode geometries ...

Modeling of Rotating Magnetic Field Eddy Current Probe for Inspection of Tubular Metallic Components

[1]Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

Rotating Magnetic Field Eddy current technique is a promising technique for inspection of flaws in metallic tubular components. Three primary coils, 120 degrees apart in space, are excited with three phase current source, by virtue, a rotating magnetic field polarised in radial direction is generated. This radial field interacts with metallic tube and generates ...

Dielectric Adaptive Optical Gels

R. Eisenschmid [1],
[1] OPTIMA pharma GmbH, Schwäbisch Hall, Germany

Adaptive Optics is common sense, since many people use digital cameras with electromechanical iris actors on elastic autofocus lenses. This project tries to create a COMSOL Multiphysics based mathematical model of adaptive optics with electrostatically induced deformation of dielectric gels. Upper and lower sides of a lens (dielectric conductive gel) are coated by transparent conductive films, i ...

Impedance Analysis of a Pot Core Inductor
