How to simulate transformers

Hello and welcome to this short blog on the simulation of transformers in Opera. Starting with the very basics of transformers, in an ideal world different windings on primary and secondary circuits produce transformed voltages and currents on the output compared to the input according to very simple calculations.

Automated Multiphysics Simulation in Opera-3d Webinar

Opera has been at the forefront of finite element electromagnetic analysis for more than thirty years. In both 2d and 3d it has been possible to transfer results between Opera analyses using table files, to perform multiphysics analyses. It is now, additionally, possible to automatically chain Opera-3d analyses, and easily perform high-fidelity multiphysics analyses.

Validation of Magnetic Field Analysis with Vector Hysteresis

Introduction   The TEAM Problem 32 paper abstract is as follows[1]: “A test case for validating 2D and 3D magnetic field analysis codes, including hysteresis, is presented. For this purpose, an experimental set-up constituted by a three limbed ferromagnetic core fitted with pick-up coils has been especially designed and built. Unidirectional flux patterns and distorted […]
