A Quiet Revolution: Analyzing Electric Motor Noise via Simulation
The sound we hear from electric-powered machines is a multiphysics phenomenon: A motor’s electromagnetic activity sends vibrations through both the machine and the surrounding air.
Analyzing Electric Motor and Generator Designs with COMSOL®
Using electromagnetics simulation, you can investigate and optimize the magnetic field distribution, mechanical torque, and iron usage and losses in a permanent magnet motor or generator.
Computing Losses in a Three-Phase Power Transformer
Around the world, power transformers are used in power grids for efficient electric power transmission. EM simulation can be used to compute losses in these devices and optimize their designs.
Simulating a Silicon Quantum Dot in a Uniform Magnetic Field
Solar cells, LEDs, displays, photodetectors, and quantum computing are all potential applications of quantum dots, an essential aspect in the field of nanotechnology.
How to Analyze Turbomolecular Pumps with COMSOL Multiphysics®
Modeling gas flow in a turbomolecular pump calls for specialized numerical methods, because at such low pressures, the gas molecules rarely collide with each other.
