Infolytica releases new version of MagNet

Written by: Infolytica Ltd | Published:

Infolytica, the leading electromagnetic design software company since 1978, has recently enhanced its suite of tools for designing complex electromechanical devices. The release of MagNet v7.5 extends the functionality of this software, which already which incorporates Multi-physics and motion effects.

MagNet is a 2D/3D analysis package, with static and dynamic field modelling of magnetic fields, plus the effects of general motion (full 6-axis). As well as an Optimiser, there is built-in parameterisation to allow "what-if" calculations, plus full scripting.

It has recently been upgraded to v7.5 with the inclusion of facilities to compute forces for components, even if they are touching each other. MagNet can also support laminations and other types of material segmentations with the perfect electric insulator boundary condition. When using this new boundary condition on a surface, MagNet will stop current flow between touching conducting components.

After working with several power transformer designers and learning more about their simulation needs, Infolytica has developed an unmatched proprietary formulation of the nonlinear surface impedance approximation. In the new formulation, both the low and the high saturation regions of the non-linear BH properties are modelled accurately.

Recently announced, MagNet for SolidWorks is the new embedded 3D electromagnetic field solver from Infolytica. Instead of using a live-link, or connecting two standalone tools, the simulation of any electromagnetic device can now be performed seamlessly within the integrated Solidworks environment using the new add-in.

MotorSolve is a specialised Design Tool for SRM, brushed and brushless DC, and Induction machines, aimed at designers who require answers quickly and accurately. There is a sizing feature (based on classical methods) to prepare an initial design, and adjustments later made using template data entry with accurate FEM then utilised. Custom Rotors and Stators can be imported as DXF files. Coil winding layouts can be created automatically, plus built-in tools for reporting and monitoring the design history. The integrated thermal modelling allows temperature effects and cooling strategies to be tested for BLDC and IM machines, all in a single package.
