The Dynamic Electromagnetic Module (Dynamic Module) can be used to calculate time varying electromagnetic fields and eddy current flow in EM devices and systems.
The Dynamic Module computes time varying fields and eddy currents in three dimensions. This includes eddy currents induced by simple moving conductors, i.e. where the movement does not change the geometry (e.g. rotating disk or infinite pipe of constant cross-section).
There are three different types of dynamic solution available, each having a different form of time variation:
- Harmonic calculates steady-state ac currents where all fields and potentials are oscillating at the same frequency
- Transient calculates transient eddy currents induced by the fields of driving currents, boundary conditions and external fields which change in time in a predetermined way
- Fixed Velocity calculates eddy currents induced by motion which does not change the geometry of the model. The source fields and driving conditions are all time invariant
