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 ...

Transient Modeling of a Capacitor in a Circuit

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.

Frequency Domain Modeling of a Capacitor

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.

Electromagnetic Forces on Parallel Current-Carrying Wires

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.

Computing the Resistance of a Wire

Every electrical device has some resistance. That is, when a voltage difference is applied across any two terminals of the device, there will be a directly proportional current flow. This model demonstrates how to compute the resistance of a short section of copper wire. The convergence of the solution with respect to the mesh size is also studied.

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 ...

Inductive Heating of Copper Cylinder

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.

Magnetic Brake

A magnetic brake consists of a permanent magnet, which induces currents in a rotating copper disk. The resulting eddy currents interact with the magnetic flux to produce Lorentz forces and subsequently a braking torque. This 3D problem is solved using a stationary formulation for the electromagnetic field coupled to an ordinary differential equation for the rotational rigid body dynamics. ...

Induction Currents from Circular Coils

A time-varying current induces a time-varying magnetic field. The magnetic field induces currents in neighboring conductors. The induced currents are called eddy currents. In this model, the phenomenon is illustrated by a time-harmonic field simulation as well as a transient analysis, where the eddy currents resulting from the source being switched on are studied. Two current-carrying coils ...
