Maxwell SV 2D

  1. May 29, 2008 #1
    Dear all,

    I'm a new user to Maxwell and to FEM. I am trying to do a magnetostatic analysis for a solenoid valve for finding inductance and force on the armature.
    I am facing few problems while making the simulation.
    1. what value shall I assign for the source? (In the tutorial provided by Ansoft, they have taken as 'no of turns*current' as input). what shall I write as a source, 1amp or 1000 amp?
    2. What is the return path for current?

    How to interprete the results the software is giving? (How to find inductance from matrix value and flux linkage?)
    Urgent help needed.
