In this chapter some available solutions of the MAGNETICS for NX/Simcenter Solver focussed on electric motors are presented as articles. The movie shows the Siemens servo motor 1FT6 and his magnetic flux density field while rotating.
The use of electromagnetic FEM analysis for electronics and transformers is also an important area of use.
Magnetics for NX/Simcenter calculates Ohm resistance, current distribution, temperature and more results on electric conductors and transformers. Also the precise calculation of inductivity for complex geometries is important for many electronic devices.
Thanks to the capability of a full wave solver, the analysis of antennas, waveguides or microwave ovens is another application area for electromagnetic simulation with Magnetics for NX/Simcenter.
The picture shows as an general example the model of a microstrip patch antenna and its electric field result. Such antennas are becoming increasingly useful because they can be printed directly onto a circuit board. They are becoming very widespread within the mobile phone market. Patch antennas are low cost, have a low profile and are easily fabricated.
Simulations like that allow finding detailed characteristics.

To prevent effects of Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) we use MAGNETICS for NX/Simcenter to analyze for Electromagnetic-Compatibility (EMC). This can be done by frequency solutions or even in the time domain. That way we ensure an undisturbed functionality of different equipment items.
In cases of motors or actuators motion effects have to be included in the analysis. When the mechanical equations for dynamics are coupled with the magnetic solution, it is possible in MAGNETICS for NX/Simcenter to simulate dynamic motion resulting from magnetic forces. Look at the examples here.
