Using Opera for Fusion Energy Applications


In this webinar we showed examples of fusion design calculations using Opera, and demonstrated features of Opera which help users create and analyse fusion simulations and models easily. These include simulating plasma disruptions and motion, where the plasma current decays and / or the plasma moves within the vacuum vessel is important for safety. We'll [...]


X-ray tube simulation webinar


This webinar reviewed the requirements of common types of X-ray tube, and looked at how the capabilities of Opera help designers meet the required characteristics of the electron beam and to optimize designs. We considered a range of phenomena and physical effects, including generation and focussing of the beam, and deposition of the beam energy [...]


Optimisation of Synchronous Reluctance Motors (SynchRels) using Opera


In the last few decades, the synchronous reluctance motor (SynchRel) has been relatively neglected in industrial, domestic and traction application because of the ascendency of permanent magnet (PM) and the ubiquitous induction (IM) motor. Recent vitality in rare earth PM prices and the unavoidable losses in IM’s have renewed interest in SynchRels – especially for [...]


NDT Device Design


Non-destructive testing or evaluation (NDT or NDE) is a process used in industry to evaluate properties of a material or a system without damaging it. Some of the uses of NDT are flaw detection and evaluation, leak detection, location determination, dimensional measurements, structure and Microstructure characterization, estimation of mechanical and physical properties, stress (strain) and [...]


MRI shielding webinar


In this webinar, we show the benefits Opera Optimizer offers when used in conjunction with magnetostatic analysis for MRI shielding applications. We also demonstrate the benefits of the new “thin plate” boundary condition, which increases efficiency without compromising accuracy, and how Opera provides the ability for shielded room designers to customize the Modeller and Post-processor [...]


Webinar: Optimize the design of your induction machine


In this webinar, we looked at different Opera capabilities that allow the full simulation and design of induction machines. We will discussed the latest advances in the model definition and solver technology which speed-up the process of analyzing and optimizing this machine type. The induction machine is the most widely used type of electrical machine. [...]


Webinar: Multi-physics simulations for industrial applications using Opera-3d


Date: 26th April 2017 Time: 3.00 pm BST Duration: 30 mins approx In this webinar we demonstrate several multi-physics cases and show Opera-3d's capabilities for industrial applications. We present several models including a beam defining mask for proton accelerator, an induction heating bath for melting solid conducting materials, a superconducting coil system and associated support and cooling, as [...]


Webinar: Simulation of Lightning protection


In this webinar we presented techniques and examples of numerical simulation of the effects of lightning strike, considering the roles of static, harmonic and transient modelling. We demonstrated how simulation can augment testing to help hardware manufacturers meet lightning protection specifications efficiently and reliably. The ability to ensure that structures and electronic systems are protected [...]


Webinar: Linear machines and actuators design with Opera-3d


In this webinar, we discussed efficient modelling techniques for linear motors and actuators. We covered important topics such as the non-linear magnetic behaviour of materials, mechanically coupled motion, multi-physics simulations and explored the benefits of the Opera software in the design and simulation of these devices. We also addressed co-simulation with circuit and parametrization and optimization, [...]


Webinar: Optimization and inverse modelling in MRI shielding applications


In this webinar, we will show the benefits Opera Optimizer offers when used in conjunction with magnetostatic analysis for MRI shielding applications. We'll also demonstrate the benefits of the new “thin plate” boundary condition, which increases efficiency without compromising accuracy, and how Opera provides the ability for shielded room designers to customize the Modeller and [...]
