A number of medical and research applications require implantable devices to locally stimulate internal organs and communicate the internal vital signals to the outer world. Wireless power transfer (WPT) technique is used to supply power to these devices. The power is transferred wirelessly from a stationary primary coil to a movable secondary coil. The secondary device is implanted in a small ...

Resistive Losses in a 3D Coil

U. Hafner [1],
[1] Baumer Electric AG, Frauenfeld, Switzerland

In this presentation it is shown how an axially symmetric coil can be simulated in a non-symmetric environment. A rotationally symmetric coil can be simulated by using a 2D model. Doing so the serial equivalent resistance of the coil is obtained among other results. The influence of the environment needs to be simulated with a 3D model. In this model the single wires of the coil are replaced by ...

Modeling a 3D Eddy Current Problem Using the Weak Formulation of the Convective A-phi Steady State Method

J. Bird[1]

[1]University of North Carolina, Charlotte, North Carolina, USA

A 3D model of a magnetic rotor both rotating and translationally moving at high-speed over a conductive guideway is modeled in steady-state using the convective A*-Φ formulation. The presence of the magnetic rotor (source field) is incorporated into the formulation via the boundary conditions. This type of problem is difficult to model using existing commercial packaged electromagnetic ...

The most popular means of depression treatment are psychotherapy, antidepressant medication and recently adopted transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) of the human brain. To overcome their disadvantages we are investigating an application of low-field magnetic stimulation (LFMS) to depression treatment. The 3D electromagnetic model of LFMS has been developed. It employs 8 small coils disposed ...

Finite Element Modeling of Pulsed Eddy Current Applied to Ferrous and Titanium Fasteners in F/A-18 Airplane Wing Structure

[1]Department of Physics, Royal Military College of Canada, Kingston, ON, Canada

Pulsed eddy current (PEC) is being developed to detect stress corrosion cracks between fasteners on the inner wing spars of the F/A-18 Hornet aircraft. The spars are located below a thick carbon/epoxy wing skin, and so cannot be detected by conventional eddy current techniques without disassembling the wing structure. Also, the effectiveness of PEC to detect defects at greater depths is ...

摘要:在太空高能带电粒子作用下,航天器上存在绝缘介质深层充电的危险。介质内沉积电荷导致局部出现强电场(达到107V/m),有可能造成介质击穿放电。一方面,充电过程与介质电导率密切相关,而电导率受温度影响显著,另一方面,介质中的通电导体发热会影响介质的局部温度,于是有必要综合考虑介质中电场与热场的耦合变化过程。对此,我们建立了考虑电场与热场耦合变化的介质深层充电模型,并采用 COMSOL Multiphysics® 软件,实现了数值求解。结果表明,在一定的空间辐射环境下,考虑热场是十分重要的,热导率会对充电结果产生不可忽视的影响。该模型有利于多因素作用下的航天器介质深层充电评估计算。 1. 引言: 近些年,卫星充放电效应得到了广泛关注和研究[1, 2]。太空高能电子会射入航天器绝缘介质中,因为该介质极低电导率(10-15S/m量级),使得内部沉积电荷难以泄放 ...

Identification and Analysis of Low-Frequency Cogging Torque Component in Permanent Magnet Machines

D. McIntosh
Sonsight Inc. / NSWC, Accokeek, MD, USA

Cogging torque in permanent magnet motors and generators is characterized by a torque ripple. These torque fluctuations cause vibrations, noise and speed fluctuations. This paper presents finite element (FE) analyses results that show a previously unaddressed low frequency modulation of cogging torque ripple. The paper resulted in an analytical formulation of cogging torque with low frequency ...

Probe Type Permanent Magnet Flowmeter

Prototype Fast Breeder Reactor (PFBR) is a 500MWe, sodium cooled, pool type, mixed oxide (MOX) fuelled reactor. Sodium flow measurement in various loops of the reactor is of prime importance from the operational and safety aspects. To measure the flow of electrically conducting sodium in large secondary circuit pipes, probe type permanent magnet flowmeters (PTFM) are used. PTFM works on the ...

This paper presents an analysis approach of multicondcutor quasi-TEM lines transmission interconnect in a single dielectric region and multimode waveguides using the finite element method (FEM). FEM is especially suitable and effective for the computation of electromagnetic fields in strongly inhomogeneous media. We illustrate that FEM is suitable and effective as other methods for modeling of ...
