This course introduces how to set up electromagnetics in Simcenter STAR-CCM+. Various mesh types in the 2D and 3D space are used in examples throughout the course. Application areas of insulation breakdown, ohmic heating under sinusoidal and non-sinusoidal excitation are addressed. Flow is modeled by specific boundary conditions. Included is also a full Multiphysics simulation. Further examples introduce concepts relevant to electric machine simulation such as iron losses, magnetization definition and circuit coupling.


Engineers who want to apply Simcenter STAR-CCM+ in electric and magnetic field simulations should attend, in particular so when their aim is to analyze transient effects and the impact onto thermal analysis.
