Optimizing Planar Coils for PCBs with Electromagnetics Simulation

January 11, 2019

Planar coils are found in the PCBs of blood pressure sensors, RFID tags, induction cooktops, and more. Use layered shell technology to design optimized planar PCB coils, no matter the use case.

Keynote Video: Designing Lightning Protection Systems with Simulation

December 12, 2018

Can lightning strike the same place twice? Either way, it is challenging to model. When designing lightning protection systems, NTS Lightning Technologies turned to multiphysics simulation.

Keynote Video: Designing Improved Heart Pumps with Simulation

December 5, 2018

Abbott Laboratories designed “the most complex machine ever implanted into a human being” — an LVAD for heart failure patients — using multiphysics modeling. The result? Saved lives.

Validating the Use of Boundary Elements for Magnetostatics Modeling

October 30, 2018

To validate the boundary element method (BEM) as a viable alternative to FEM for magnetostatics modeling, you can try a 3-part tutorial series of electromagnetic force calculations.

Evaluating Transformer Designs with Electromagnetics Simulation

October 25, 2018

Transformers are used to increase, decrease, and isolate voltage in many different types of devices. EM simulation can be used to evaluate a transformer design, no matter its purpose.

How to Perform a Nonlinear Distortion Analysis of a Loudspeaker Driver

June 18, 2018

For a thorough and complete analysis of a loudspeaker driver design, acoustics engineers need to perform nonlinear time-domain studies in addition to frequency-domain studies.

Optimizing Combustion Particle Control in an Electric Filter Design

June 5, 2018

To optimize the design of an electrostatic filter, researchers from Switzerland used multiphysics modeling, validating their results by comparing them to experimental data.

How to Model Conductors in Time-Varying Magnetic Fields

May 25, 2018

You can use the AC/DC Module to perform frequency-domain simulations for conductors in time-varying magnetic fields by describing the skin effect.
