Infolytica is about to introduce Magnet Version 7, an improved version of the company’s electromagnetic-field simulation software based on finite element analysis.

Version 7 will be a multi-threaded application and will leverage the computation power available with multicore platforms.

It will feature improved computational algorithms for solving, post-processing, meshing and other features of the software.

The algorithms are parallelised to run on multiple cores simultaneously and allow for multi-threaded operations.

To demonstrate the increase in performance, a transient 3D simulation of a clawpole alternator was performed using an internal-build Magnet v7 on a quadcore processor.

The combination of system improvements and using multi-threaded algorithms helped achieve a speed-up factor of 2.8 times on two threads, increasing to 3.8 times using four threads.

Magnet v7 also features a refreshed and reorganised graphical user interface that includes new CAD functionality and crisper post-processing visualisation.

Thermnet v7, the thermal simulation software that couples with Magnet for accurate heating and loss predictions, has also been updated to include the same enhancements.

Elecnet v7, the electric-field simulation software from Infolytica, is also due out at the same time.

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.
