Modeling Electromagnetic Actuators with COMSOL Web Workshop
Electromagnetic actuators are electromechanical devices in which a plunger is moved due to the magnetic force developed by the current flowing in the actuator's coils. The dynamics of these devices are modeled according to Newtonian mechanics. In the COMSOL® software, this type of electrodynamics is modeled by coupling electromagnetics with a mathematics interface.
In this web workshop, we will dive into the specifics of modeling electromagnetic actuators in COMSOL®, including how to model:
- Nonlinear magnetic materials and coils with the Magnetic Fields interface
- Plunger motion with a moving mesh
- Newtonian mechanics with the Global ODEs and DAEs interface
