Need help setting up FEMM for current flow problem

  1. Apr 17, 2010 #1
    I am new to FEMM 4.2 and need help setting up a simple current flow problem. I have a square copper sheet that has input and output terminals (square contacts) in opposite corners and and 1000A flowing across it. The sheet is 16" square and the contacts are 2" square. The sheet is 0.050" and the contacts are 0.25" thick. The part I don't get is setting up the boundaries and setting up the conductors. I start my simulation and it never solves. How do I setup the boundaries and conductors?

    Thanks in advance, Bill
