The Banana Story

I was working late one night when my wife said “you can’t simulate this!” and cracked open a banana in her usual way. Challenge accepted. I found an IGES hand on a cad-share hub which I meshed and morphed to … Read More

Computing Capacitances Matrices

Different applications now need to evaluate the capacitive behaviors of their devices. Power modules, for instance, are now working at high frequencies and a capacitive behavior appears in addition to the resistive-inductive aspects. Unfortunately these effects may have undesirable effects on … Read More

3D Induction Motor Modeling

The induction motor (IM) is the most common type of motor in the world. In fact nearly half of all the motors in the world are IM. Nevertheless, the design of the IM is constantly evolving. With the arrival of … Read More

Parametric Analysis vs Optimization

Users often rely on parametric studies to analyse their device performances within different parameter sets (sensitivity analysis) and often wonder if it’s possible to go beyond that in order to directly find the best solution. Optimization methods can help by … Read More

Perform Faster & More Accurate Simulations!

Simulation software now allows easy creation of real virtual prototypes. Greater computational efficiency means less time to get results while performing rapid, detailed analysis on a device! Customized virtual prototyping software tools offer a wide range of options to support … Read More

Regulate Current with User Subroutine Using Groovy Language

Groovy Language is a dynamic language with features similar to those of Python, Ruby, Perl, and Smalltalk. Groovy is an object-oriented programming language for the Java platform. Most Java code is also syntactically valid Groovy, although semantics may be different.
