In a keynote talk at COMSOL Day Canada, Jordan Morelli of Queen’s University discusses using COMSOL Multiphysics® to model systems in the general field of applied magnetics. He starts by sharing three different examples from students in the Applied Magnetics group who modeled pulsed eddy current inspection systems, a linear induction motor for a Hyperloop pod design, and the effects of EMF exposure on the human brain. Next, he goes more in-depth on a nuclear fusion project where he helped model the electrical breakdown of gases and magnetic confinement of the resulting plasma. For this project, they took advantage of the COMSOL® software’s equation-based modeling capabilities as well as an example model in the Application Libraries.
Jordan Morelli is a professor in engineering and applied physics at Queen’s University. He has won numerous teaching awards, including the Golden Apple Award and the Excellence in Instruction in the Engineering Physics Program Award. Jordan is also a Certificate of Authorization license holder and provides engineering consulting services in the general fields of electrical engineering and sustainable energy systems.
