ANSYS Maxwell Low Frequency Electromagnetic Field Simulation

ANSYS Maxwell

ANSYS Maxwell is the industry-leading electromagnetic field simulation software for the design and analysis of electric motors, actuators, sensors, transformers and other electromagnetic and electromechani¬≠cal devices. With Maxwell, you can precisely characterize the nonlinear, transient motion of electromechanical components and their effects on the drive circuit and control system design. By leveraging Maxwell’s advanced electromagnetic field solvers and seamlessly linking them to the integrated circuit and systems simulation technology, you can understand the performance of electromechanical systems long before building a prototype in hardware. This virtual electromagnetic lab gives you an important competitive advantage with faster time to market, reduced costs and improved system performance.

Maxwell includes the following solvers:

  • Magnetic Transient with rigid motion
  • AC Electromagnetic
  • Magnetostatic
  • Electrostatic
  • DC Conduction
  • Electric Transient
  • Expert Design Interfaces for electric machines and transformers
  • ANSYS Simplorer Entry (circuit and system simulation)
