How Infolytica MagNet v7 Can Boost Your Electromagnetic Field Simulation Performance
Infolytica MagNet v7 is a powerful software tool for simulating electromagnetic fields in 2D and 3D. Whether you are designing motors, transformers, sensors, actuators, or any other device that involves magnetic or electric phenomena, MagNet v7 can help you achieve faster and more accurate results.
In this article, we will highlight some of the key features and benefits of MagNet v7 that make it stand out from other electromagnetic field simulation software.
Multi-threaded Application for Multicore Platforms
One of the main advantages of MagNet v7 is that it is a multi-threaded application that can leverage the computation power available with multicore platforms. This means that MagNet v7 can run multiple operations simultaneously on different cores of your processor, resulting in significant speed ups in the software.
For example, a transient 3D simulation of a clawpole alternator performed using MagNet v7 on a quadcore processor achieved a speed up factor of 2.8x using two threads, increasing to 3.8x using four threads [^1^].
MagNet v7 also supports parallel computing for 2D solvers (static, AC, transient and transient fields with moving components), automatic meshing and re-meshing in 2D, and running concurrent sessions of MagNet solvers in 2D or 3D. This gives you more flexibility and control over how to allocate your computational resources for different design problems.
Nonlinear Surface Impedances and Permanent Magnet Magnetization
Another feature of MagNet v7 that enhances its accuracy and versatility is the ability to model nonlinear surface impedances and simulate the magnetization process of permanent magnets.
Nonlinear surface impedances are useful for modeling thin conductive layers or coatings that exhibit nonlinear behavior under high currents or frequencies. MagNet v7 allows you to define nonlinear surface impedance functions for any material and apply them to any surface in your model [^2^].
Permanent magnet magnetization is a process that determines the magnetic field strength inside the permanent magnet component based on the magnetization pattern and source current in the magnetizing coils. MagNet v7 allows you to simulate this process and obtain a permanent magnet for which each point inside will have a different recoil loop depending on the flux density that it has reached during the magnetization process [^2^]. This can help you optimize your permanent magnet design for specific applications.
New User Interface and CAD Functionality
Besides improving its computational algorithms and capabilities, MagNet v7 also features a refreshed and reorganized graphical user interface that makes it easier and more intuitive to use. The new interface includes new CAD functionality such as Boolean operations, extrusions, sweeps, lofts, fillets, chamfers, shells, patterns, and more. You can also import and export various CAD formats such as STEP, IGES, DXF, DWG, STL, etc [^1^].
The new interface also offers crisper post-processing visualizations such as contour plots, vector plots, cut planes, animations, etc. You can also customize your plots with different color schemes, scales, labels, legends, etc [^1^].
Infolytica MagNet v7 is a state-of-the-art software tool for electromagnetic field simulation that can help you design better and faster. With its multi-threaded application for multicore platforms, nonlinear surface impedances and permanent magnet magnetization features, new user interface and CAD functionality, MagNet v7 offers you a comprehensive and powerful solution for your electromagnetic field simulation needs.
