Introduction to ANSYS Maxwell - FEA, CFD and Explicit Dynamics

Introduction to ANSYS Maxwell

Simulation of Electromagnetic Fields with ANSYS Maxwell

This seminar is aimed at all who want to learn about the simulation of electromagnetic and electromechanical applications. The simulation of inductive components for energy transfer and signal conditioning in ANSYS Maxwell is practiced in hands-on applications, such as transformers and coils. Another module of the seminar is the modeling of electromechanical transducers, which are investigated as motors, sensors and actuators (solenoids, folding relays).

As this training class does not require any simulation knowledge, it is ideal starting point to get in touch with magnetic simulation !
