Insulators are devices that are used for effective separation of the power lines and ground structures. Another purpose of these devices is the mechanical support for power lines. Insulators used for high-voltage power transmission are mostly made of glass, ceramic or polymer materials and are covered with a smooth glaze Continue reading High-Voltage Insulator for Outdoor Use
Flux-switching permanent magnet (FSPM) machines belong to the family of variable reluctance machines (VRMs) with permanent magnets. Their principal advantage is a very simple construction of their rotors, which is the reason why the VRMs are used in a number of applications. On the other hand, their control is rather Continue reading Flux-Switching Permanent Magnets Machine
Induction heating of cylindrical billets of nonmagnetic metals like aluminum before their extrusion or hot forming is a widely spread technology used in many industrial plants. One of alternative way of induction heating of non-magnetic cylindrical billets. Basic device for rotational induction heating consists of an induction motor driving the Continue reading Rotational Induction Heating
Triboelectrostatic separation is one of the advanced techniques for separation of plastic materials. This technique is based on the triboelectric effect. It is known that when electrically non-conducting particles of two different levels come into contact with electric charge, one of them becomes more positive (or negative) with respect to Continue reading Triboelectrostatic separator
Actuators (also called as power transducers) are electrical devices that transform input energy (control variable) to output mechanical work (acting variable). A special type of actuator is the electromagnetic actuator. Control variable of this actuator is electric current and acting variable is force interaction and its effects. The principle of Continue reading Electromagnetic Actuator
All physical field information (governing equations, quantities evaluated in post-processing etc.) has been separated from the code and put in XML files. Agros2D reads all this data dynamically on demand and it has several advantages. User can easily modify equations or add quantities in post-processing without the knowledge of C++. Continue reading Field modules written in XML
Thanks to unique features of the Hermes library, different meshes may be considered for each field, even in parts of the domain, where respective fields coincide. This is important in cases, where individual fields have different properties and thus should be discretized using different types of elements.
The core of Agros2D has been rewritten in new version to allow coupling of more physical fields in one single calculation. We implemented both weak and hard coupling, each being useful for different type of problems. At the present moment, coupling of current or magnetic field with temperature field through Continue reading Solution of coupled problems
