Ansys Maxwell 2D Number of turns

  1. Hi,

    How do you define number of turns in a coil designed to operate at 100 kHz? Maxwell 2D axisymmetric treats the coils as a single conductor, how can we define number of turns. I would appreciate any response.

  3. I don't know Maxwell but in Comsol you simply identify a toroidally shaped shell as being a "coil" and assign N turns plus a current direction (as a cross product orientation) as a property to it. IR losses are determined by the resistivity of the material assigned. The simulator "cheats" and simplifies the B calculation based on circular sheet currents in the structure and multiplies by N.

    I'm guessing that Maxwell does something like this.
  4. Thanks for the reply. I actually figured out how to integrate the number of turns (integrate N on the matrix) and maxwell does exactly the same thing with comsol and call it post processing.
