Homework Help: A question about ansoft maxwell 3D 11.1 design

  1. Oct 10, 2009 #1
    hi all,

    i need some help about modeling a coil on maxwell 3D(transient analysys.).my problem is defining coil terminals.i have 6 coils(star connected) and 3 current source(star connected).i attached my work.coils are solenoid style winded.(ring style winding) and each coil has 130 turn.i design my model,i upload external circuit netlist to maxwell then i got this error when i validate my design..(by the way i try to do my analysys on transient solution type.)

    "[error] Verify conduction path 'Path2': For any conduction path that has coil terminal excitation(s) specified, either exactly one internal coil terminal or two external coil terminals should be specified."

    i have google it but i got nothing...
    any turtorial/manual or lecture notes??or any idea how to define coil terminals?

    sorry for my bad english.

    Hit the "F" button on your keyboard to select object faces. Then select each coil individually and define an insulating band. The material definitions are too close in conduction properties. Maxwell is lumping them all together.
