Ansys Maxwell Getting Started (Self-paced
Learning Available)

Course Overview

The Ansys Maxwell Getting Started course introduces learners to the static and quasistatic solvers available in Ansys Maxwell, which operates in the Ansys Electronic Desktop (AEDT).  Electric solvers include Electrostatic, and Electric Transient.  Magnetic solvers include Magnetostatic, Eddy Current and Magnetic Transient.  Most workshops include geometry construction instructions, but the workshops also provide files for learners not interested in 3D modeling practice.  

Prerequisites

  • Knowledge of static and quasistatic electromagnetics (such as eddy currents)
  • “AEDT Intro Video”, “AEDT 3D Modeler Point Dialog” and other geometry construction videos are recommended for basic familiarity with AEDT and the AEDT 3D Modeler.  

Target Audience

Engineers and Designers involved in low frequency electromagnetics 

Teaching Method

Lectures and hands-on computer simulation workshop sessions

Learning Outcome

Following completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Set up 2D and 3D Maxwell simulations, including excitations, boundary conditions, parameters (e.g., force and matrices), analyses and mesh operations.
  • Understand differences between static solvers AC/DC Conduction, Eddy Current Magnetic Transient, Magnetostatic and Electrostatic analysis.
  • Understand Magnetic/Electric transient solver usage including motion, excitations, parameters, and loss models.
  • Set up parametric models for variation studies (parametric sweeps).
  • Set up simulation results reports in 2D plots and electromagnetic field plots visible on the geometry.
