Opera-3d used to help pioneer fusion energy company

When Tokamak Energy Ltd. began a project to conduct pioneering work in the important field of fusion energy, in order to develop advanced, more compact fusion machines (tokamaks), they turned to Opera. With Opera’s sophisticated electromagnetic design software they were able to resolve some critical issues as part of a fascinating engineering challenge. The company grew [...]

IoT and the future of the automotive industry (part 1)

By Joe Couling The Internet of Things (IoT) is a technological revolution of such magnitude that it’s difficult to grasp. Fully realised, the IoT represents total connectivity. This means a vast network of smart devices relaying information to one another and adapting in an instantaneous feedback loop. This has profound implications for every sector not least [...]

IoT and the future of the automotive industry (part 2)

Ford is embracing the potential for new revenue models with FordPass and is manoeuvring itself to become part of its customer’s lives outside of the immediate context of the driving experience. The FordPass app already allows users to do things like pay for their parking in advance and request roadside assistance but IoT technology could [...]

MRI main field magnets

Authors: Johan Overweg, Philips Research, Hamburg, Germany Abstract: MRI scanners come in various shapes and they are based on several distinctly different technologies to create the static background field (B0). Whatever the shape and the technology, all B0 magnets for MRI have in common that they generate a strong field, which has, within narrow tolerances, […]

Optimal design of transformers

By Nigel Atkinson With the growing requirement to improve the design of tomorrow’s transformers, many designers and engineers are finding they need to investigate new types of transformer, with higher ratings or smaller footprint. Or quite simply, they need to improve their device’s efficiency. Engineers who have taken their designs as far as possible with hand [...]

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 [...]

Webinar: Multiphysics and tracking in Radio Frequency fields

This webinar concentrated on the  simulation of particle accelerators, analysing Opera's capabilities in the design and analysis of RF and charged particle systems, and in multi-physics. We will look at, for example, where RF and beam power deposition increase component temperatures, with consequent stress and deformation. Although this webinar was based on simulating the components [...]

Launch of Machines Spoke for the Advanced Propulsion Centre

by Chris Riley and Nikhil Sawant 12 October, Newcastle University The Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) is a 10 year, £1 billion commitment between the UK Government and the automotive industry to make Britain a centre for the development and production of low carbon vehicles (LCVs). APC is a private limited company created by innovators and […]

Recent advances in simulation of naval vessel signatures

By Chris Riley The simulation of naval vessel signatures has been an important application for a long time, and using simulation software electromagnetic designers can perform different types of calculation for this application. But what is a signature and why do we need to determine signatures at all? The main reason that magnetic signatures occur [...]
