Resource Library

As part of Opera’s commitment to providing the best expertise in electromagnetic simulation, we have a wide selection of on-demand webinars, validation studiesnews and technical papers. Many materials are directly accessible while some materials will require you to register; all are free and available. To discover more, hover over the icons in the circle below, and click for more information:


Covering introductory topics including how to use Opera for magnet, transformer and rotating machinery design, as well as capabilities such as Multiphysics and advanced material modelling. More advanced topics include simulating ion beam, plasma and sputter coating devices with Opera and virtual prototyping of superconducting devices.

Validation Studies

Each of the validation studies is a technical paper that assumes a familiarity with the physics phenomena under investigation. Most are richly illustrated, and reference materials are provided when applicable. Studies of note include “Maximizing the Benefits of Non-Destructive Testing Using Simulation,” “Parallel Computing for FEA Simulations” and “Enhancing Accuracy by Including Eddy Currents in Electromagnetic Analyses.”


The latest developments and enhancements in Opera, and a more technical view of implementation of Opera Simulation Software from customers. Showcasing the use of Opera with new ground-breaking technologies.

Technical papers

Links to published papers and presentations of original research results or reviews of existing results using Opera simulation software.
