Vehicles with battery as energy storage fascinate more and more people. Meanwhile, more questions are surfaced – How to ensure a safe operation of the battery package? How long could the cycle life of a battery package reach? Can a battery package be operated in any environmental circumstance? All these questions are the driving forces of our work – development of the optimal battery packs for ...

In principal, the calculation of the magnetic state inside a magnetic object requires the evaluation of the field in the entire unbounded space. With finite element methods restricted to finite domains, commonly auxiliary domains are employed which result in a non-physical cut-off. Not only are these additional domains result in an increased number of degrees of freedom which are strictly ...

In the field of electric machines, a trend towards both higher efficiency and higher power density is observed. This has led to a growing importance of Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machines. However, the magnets used in these machines risk demagnetization at high temperatures. Especially in machines operated at high speeds. A commonly proposed solution is the shielding cylinder (SC), a ...

1. INTRODUCTION. In a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system (see Fig. 1), it is necessary to excite the nuclei of a patient into coherent precession for imaging. This requires coupling between the nuclei and a source of radio frequency (RF) power (the transmitter). To receive a meaningful signal, one also needs to couple the nuclei to an external circuitry (the receiver). These two ...

In this paper we present a summary of our work on numerical modeling of superconductors with COMSOL Multiphysics®. We discuss the two models we utilized for this purpose: a 2-D model based on solving Maxwell equations and a 1-D model for thin conductors based on solving the integral equation for the current density distribution. The latter is useful for modeling second generation High ...

In our experiments with manipulating cells with DEP, we noted that some cells are constantly spining. By hypothesing that the cell spining is caused by the non-circular shape of the cell body and the off-centered location of its nucleus and that the rotation direction depends on the relative location of nucleus with respect to the electrical field, we found that the observed cell rotation was ...

The aim of the simulation is to study the behavior of a particular arrangement of a sealing system made of a Toroidal Spring Coil encapsulated in an thin casing, which is provided with a circumpherential cut to permit the pressure fill it inside. The mechanical simulation implemented in COMSOL Multiphysics® software is necessary to understand the displacements and stresses of the structure ...

Microwave discharges have a wide range of applications, such as gas conversion, material processing and surface treatment; also they can provide an efficient way for dissociation of molecular gases as CO2 and N2O. Depending on the operating pressure and temperature, non-equilibrium conditions can be attained within the discharge, where electron temperature, vibrational temperature and ...
