Hi!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Does anybody here have experience with the FEMM simulation software? Its pretty popular in the engg community. I basically use it for simulating magnetostatic problems.

If you do (and if this is the right forum, it is EE after all), could somebody tell me how I can do transient analysis, sinusoidal current inputs, etc using FEMM? I basically would like to send sinusoidally varying currents (or other such combinations) to a simple solenoid.

Also, could somebody suggest some good *free* 3d simulation software, since the 2D version isn't too convenient for visualizing effects, and also other free 2D simulation software. Even an evaluation copy for 3d simulation would be helpful - if its available for download right away.

'Quickfield' is another software that uses FE and has a 2d student version, but its way too limited for any practical problems.

Thanks,
