Particle accelerator systems design at HVE with Opera-3D

Presenter: Guillermo Dominguez, High Voltage Engineering Abstract: Opera-3D has proven to be a valuable design and optimization tool of particle accelerator systems which can presently go up to 6 million volts. We will present recent systems developed at HVE, examples where Opera-3D simulation package has helped improve/optimize the engineering, anticipating the major challenges while shortening [...] Posted in Magnets,Magnets Paper,Superconducting Magnets

Coupled simulation of 400 MHz elliptical cavity with Soprano and Static Stress Solver of Opera

Presenter: Anastasia Xydou, CERN Abstract: The LHC (RF) cavity is a metallic chamber which contains an oscillating electromagnetic field. The cavity is made of copper and the desired superconducting behavior is achieved by sputter-depositing its inner surface with a film of niobium (Nb) with a thickness of the order of 1 m. Each cavity is enveloped [...] Posted in Magnets,Magnets Paper,Superconducting Magnets

Join us for the 2018 European User Group Meeting

During June a group of scientists, design engineers and researchers from across Europe will visit Oxford for the OperaFEA European User Group Meeting. But what can they expect from the academic location of this year’s meeting? Oxford’s historical roots can be traced back to when it was originally a settlement in Saxon times. Located at [...] Posted in General

EUGM 2017: Opera Update 2017

Presenter: Eddie Moor, Programme Manager, Opera Software Abstract: In this session the Opera Programme Manager will outline key updates in Opera. This will include an overview of recent and future developments as well as a sneak peek at some of the longer term projects for the Opera Roadmap, allowing users the opportunity to give feedback [...] Posted in General

Electro-mechanical System Analysis using Opera and RomaxDesigner

Presenter: Dr. Melanie Michon, Romax Technology Abstract: The design of integrated electrified drivelines requires a holistic electro-mechanical approach. However, often electrical and mechanical components are designed separately, and problems don’t occur until the complete system is assembled and tested. In particular NVH problems are often caused by interactions between the electrical and the mechanical sub-systems [...] Posted in General,Motors,Motors Papers

Simulation of the H-injection system for the CERN Proton Synchrotron Booster in Opera-3d

Presenter: Jonathan Speed, CERN Abstract: The simulation of magnets for CERN particle accelerators is an essential part of the design process of new units, the analysis of the functionality of old ones, and even to guide the identification of magnet faults. One such application is the analysis of the future H- injection system for the [...] Posted in Accelerator Magnets,General

EUGM 2017: Training on modelling & meshing in Opera-3d including interoperability

Presenter: Applications Engineer, Opera Software Abstract: In this presentation we will concentrate on demonstrating some of the new features that were introduced in latest releases of Opera and on showing some solutions to the problems that originated from enquiries by Opera users and which could be of interest to a wider audience. The geometric modelling [...] Posted in General
