EUGM 2017: Opera Update 2017

Presenter: Eddie Moor, Programme Manager, Cobham Technical Services Abstract: In this session the Opera Programme Manager will outline key updates in Opera. This will include an overview of recent and future developments as well as a sneak peek at some of the longer term projects for the Opera Roadmap, allowing users the opportunity to give [...] Posted in General

How to design a linear machine

In this blog I will take a look at the design of linear machines, where advanced material models are being used in order to investigate the effects of hysteresis on the machine characteristic. Linear machines are electrical motors or generators which transform mechanical energy into electrical energy and vice versa, through the use of linear [...] Posted in How to...,Linear Motion,Motors,Motors Papers

Electro-mechanical System Analysis using Opera and RomaxDesigner

Presenter: Dr. Melanie Michon, Romax Technology Abstract: The design of integrated electrified drivelines requires a holistic electro-mechanical approach. However, often electrical and mechanical components are designed separately, and problems don’t occur until the complete system is assembled and tested. In particular NVH problems are often caused by interactions between the electrical and the mechanical sub-systems [...] Posted in General,Motors,Motors Papers

How to simulate industrial designs for multi-physics applications

Opera is a suite of multi-physics analysis programs that includes electromagnetics, stress and thermal analysis. To highlight the main points that make it suitable for industrial designs: Opera includes an easy-to-use 3D Modeller, allowing models to be created or imported -in a wide variety of standard CAD formats; Scripting in the Modeller makes it a [...] Posted in Charged Particle Devices,CPD Papers,How to...,Induction Welding

Simulation of the H-injection system for the CERN Proton Synchrotron Booster in Opera-3d

Presenter: Jonathan Speed, CERN Abstract: The simulation of magnets for CERN particle accelerators is an essential part of the design process of new units, the analysis of the functionality of old ones, and even to guide the identification of magnet faults. One such application is the analysis of the future H- injection system for the [...] Posted in Accelerator Magnets,General

EUGM 2017: Training on modelling & meshing in Opera-3d including interoperability

Presenter: Applications Engineer, Cobham Technical Services Abstract: In this presentation we will concentrate on demonstrating some of the new features that were introduced in latest releases of Opera and on showing some solutions to the problems that originated from enquiries by Opera users and which could be of interest to a wider audience. The geometric [...] Posted in General

EUGM 2017: Using Python to provide multi-physics capabilities

Presenter: Chris Riley, Engineering Manager, Cobham Technical Services Abstract: Python has been integrated into the Opera-3d solvers in order to allow data calculated during a particular simulation process to be made available to other Opera-3d simulations. For example, force densities at each output time, or indeed time-step, of a transient electromagnetic simulation could be made [...] Posted in General

EUGM 2017: Training on Python & Opera-2d scripting

Presenter: Applications engineer, Cobham Technical Services Abstract: Along with the new Opera-2d software currently under development, a completely new scripting language will be made available to Opera users. The Python language will offer a much more flexible environment for scripting models, controlling simulations and manipulating data. An easy-to-use and extremely powerful language, Python will enable [...] Posted in General

EUGM 2017: Recent developments to Opera’s magnetron sputter simulation tool

Presenter: Applications engineer, Cobham Technical Services Abstract: Sputter coating is widely used for the fabrication of thin films in a highly diverse range of applications - from decorative and low emissivity coat­ings on glass, through to deposition on circuits and engineering coating on products used in some of today’s most demanding applications. Of the many [...] Posted in Charged Particle Devices,General,Induction Welding
