With the ever-rising demand for electrical power, and the need for higher efficiency in all components related to power distribution, the design of power transformers comes under the spotlight as never before. Many older generation transformers are approaching their end of life, and newer generation transformers are having greater demands put upon them. As such, the use of computer simulation has become a vital component in the design and diagnostics of power transformers. A number of features make MagNet the ideal choice for this type of design and analysis.

Infolytica have provided state-of-the-art Electromagnetic simulation software for magnetic, electric, and thermal analyses since 1978. Engineers from a wide range of industries use Infolytica software to design and analyse applications including electromechanical devices, non-destructive testing, induction heating, and industrial transformers. Full feature scripting and parameterisation (including Optimisation) make Infolytica products the flexible solution for electromagnetic simulation.

MagNet for SOLIDWORKS is an embedded 3D electromagnetic field solver from Infolytica. Instead of using a live-link, or connecting two standalone tools, the simulation of any electromagnetic device can now be performed seamlessly within the integrated SOLIDWORKS environment using this add-in. It is the ideal choice for designers who regularly use SOLIDWORKS, and have a need for electromagnetic analysis.

MagNet is a 2D/3D analysis package, with static and dynamic field modelling of magnetic fields, plus the effects of general motion. ElecNet is the equivalent package for 2D/3D electric field analysis. Automated coupling to thermal analysis allows the effects of temperature to be included. As well as a built-in circuit simulator, MagNet also co-simulates with 3rd party software including Simulink and PSIM.

MotorSolve is a specialised Design Tool for SRM, brushed and brushless DC, and Induction machines, aimed at designers who require answers quickly and accurately. There is a sizing feature (based on classical methods) to prepare an initial design, and adjustments later made using template data entry with accurate FEM then utilised. The integrated thermal modelling allows temperature effects and cooling strategies to be tested for BLDC and IM machines, all in a single package.
