Parametric Electromagnetic Simulation in SOLIDWORKS

Design Scenarios

What is parametric Electromagnetic simulation? In the EMS for SOLIDWORKS add-in, we can study how the electromagnetic fields, forces etc., vary as a function of a given parameter. The parameter can be any SOLIDWORKS dimension or any simulation related variable. Examples of SOLIDWORKS dimensions can…

Transformer Simulation: How to perform open and short circuit tests easily inside SOLIDWORKS

Transformer Simulation Section plot of the magnetic flux density

A transformer is a static electrical machine that transfers electrical energy between 2 or more circuits through the principle of electromagnetic induction. As shown in Figure 1, the transformer consists of a core (usually laminated steel), a primary winding and a secondary winding. A time…

Engineers empower chefs with induction heating analysis using EMS for SOLIDWORKS

Induction Coil Analysis Results

Induction heating is a process of heating an electrical conductor (usually ferromagnetic materials and metals) by electromagnetic induction. The heat generated in the conductor is due to the eddy currents induced in the conductor. In the simplest form, an induction heater consists of a coil…

Rectangular Microstrip Antenna with Spaced Dielectric Superstrates Frequency Study

HFWorks Electric Field Animation

Microstrip antennas are becoming a popular choice for a wide range of wireless communication.  They are lightweight, low cost, and straightforward to design, this application, however, requires that the antenna be placed out of sight of the consumer, beneath protective dielectric superstrates. This placement of…

Electric Motor design process is hypercharged with SOLIDWORKS and EMS

Electric Cars Charging

The electric motor works on the principle of electromagnetics. After Michael Faraday demonstrated in 1821 that electrical energy could be converted into mechanical energy, the search for an ideal electric motor had started. By 1885, Nicola Tesla was able to give a concept of an…
