Simulating the Moving Parts of a Generator
Model ID: 2122
In this model, a rotor with permanent magnets and a nonlinear magnetic material rotates within a stator of the same magnetic material.
The generated voltage in windings around the stator is calculated as a function of time. COMSOL Multiphysics models the rotation with assemblies and identity pairs. The nonlinearity of the magnetic material is also taken into account using an interpolation function.
