Electro-Magnetic Components

Learn the basic building-blocks of electro-magnetic circuits (winding, core, air-gap, etc.) and to assemble them into physical models of components such as transformers and solenoids. Their realistic behavior, like saturation, core-loss and back-EMF, is well suited for mechatronic system design analysis.

Design requirements often focus on steady-state performance and operating conditions. Component sizing and ratings selection, if based solely on meeting these objectives, can lead to unexpected and sometimes catastrophic results. Parts may be most severely stressed during transients that occur infrequently, perhaps only once during the initial start-up!

New: Explore Live Energy Harvesting Designs

In a previous blog post, I provided a number of Energy Harvesting example designs that could be modeled and simulated in SystemVision. These included electrodynamic, thermal and solar energy harvesting for Industrial IoT and Automotive applications. Subsequent to that posting, we added a rich new capability to SystemVision, "Live Designs".
