EUGM 2017: Training on Python & Opera-2d scripting


Presenter: Applications engineer, Opera Software Abstract: Along with the new Opera-2d software currently under development, a completely new scripting language will be made available to Opera users. The Python language will offer a much more flexible environment for scripting models, controlling simulations and manipulating data. An easy-to-use and extremely powerful language, Python will enable Opera [...]


EUGM 2017: Recent developments to Opera’s magnetron sputter simulation tool


Presenter: Applications engineer, Opera Software Abstract: Sputter coating is widely used for the fabrication of thin films in a highly diverse range of applications - from decorative and low emissivity coat­ings on glass, through to deposition on circuits and engineering coating on products used in some of today’s most demanding applications. Of the many different [...]


EUGM 2017: An alternative method of reaching a steady state operation point for electrical machines


Presenter: Florian Waldhart, Leitner Ropeways Abstract: A simulation of a steady state operation point is a main task for the simulation of electrical machines. Therefore, some methods will be presented which show the calculation procedure for getting such an operation point, starting with static simulations and ending up with different transient simulations. The main part of the [...]


Chris Riley at MARELEC


Our Engineering Manager Chris Riley will be attending this year’s MARELEC conference in Liverpool on the 27th-30th June. See below for highlights of the papers he’ll be presenting. Assessment and optimization of field homogeneity in de-perm facilities De-perm facilities need a coil system that will provide a uniform magnetic field within the vessel that is [...]


How to simulate magnetron sputtering


By Nigel Atkinson So, what is magnetron sputtering? It is a physical vapour deposition technique, in which a plasma in a chamber is used to generate ions that are accelerated towards a negative target, ejecting material, which is then allowed to deposit on a workpiece, or substrate as it is usually known. Low pressure is [...]

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.


How to simulate synchronous reluctance machines


This blog will discuss how to design synchronous reluctance machines in Opera. Here is some sample geometry of a typical Synchronous Reluctance, or SyncRel, machine, showing a cross-section of the laminations.


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. [...]


How to simulate superconducting corrector coils in accelerator magnets


By Chris Riley  Welcome to this blog on modelling superconducting corrector coils with OperaFEA simulation software. We will start with a little bit of history.  The Opera software has links back to the Rutherford laboratory’s Computer Applications Group that began developing computer methods for the design of particle accelerator magnets in the late 1960s. The [...]
