Transient magnetic analysis overview

Transient magnetics allows performing transient or steady state AC analysis designing a variety of DC or AC devices such as electric motors, transformers , and so forth. Generally the quantities of interest in transient magnetics analysis are time functions of magnetic flux density, field intensity, external, induced and total current densities, forces, torques, inductance, and flux linkage.

The transient magnetic field simulation can be coupled with electric circuit. The circuit can contain arbitrarily connected resistors, capacitors, inductances, voltage and current sources, and solid conductors located in the magnetic field region.

QuickField can perform linear and nonlinear transient magnetic analysis for 2-D and axisymmetric models. The program is based on a vector potential formulation. Following options are available for transient magnetic analysis:
