The table below shows the QuickField packages that can be applied to the various aspects of transformer design.
QuickField analysis options which may be used for this application are:
- AC magnetics
Calculation of power losses, magnetic forces, induced voltages, eddy current distribution.
- Transient magnetics
Switching on and shutting down analysis. Pulse transformer design.
- Heat transfer (coupled with AC or transient magnetics)
Temperature distribution inside the transformer; evaluation of local overheating.
- Stress analysis (coupled with AC or DC magnetics and/or Heat Transfer)
Stress and strain distribution inside the windings and the core.
