Coil

Description

This excitation provides a source for a magnetostatics simulation and can only be applied to bodies.

Simulator Applicability

3D Magnetostatics (MS3p)

Common Uses

Requirements

Limitations

Can only be applied to bodies.

Parameters

Label - A unique name that identifies the attribute. (IAttribute/Label)

Color - Color used on objects to which this attribute is applied. (IAttribute/Color)

Current Density - [CURRENT DENSITY] – Controls the amplitude of the excitation. Defined as a density in a cross section relative to the specified direction. (IMSCoil/CurrentDensity)

Current Direction/Type - Indicates if direction is specified in Cartesian or cylindrical coordinate system. (IMSCoil/CurrentDirectionType)

Current Direction/Direction - Direction of the current flow in the chosen type of coordinate system. If cylindrical these inputs correspond to (R, P, Z). (IMSCoil/CurrentDirection)

Current Direction/Coordinate System Origin - [LENGTH] Origin of the cylindrical coordinate system defined in the world coordinate system. (IMSCoil/CylindricalCoodinateSystem:CylindricalCoordinateSystemOrigin)

Current Direction/Coordinate System Axial Direction - Axial direction of the cylindrical coordinate system defined in the world coordinate system. This is a unitless vector and its magnitude is irrelevant. (IMSCoil/CylindricalCoodinateSystem:CylindricalCoordinateSystemAxialDirection)

Current Direction/Coordinate System Radial Direction - Radial direction of the cylindrical coordinate system defined in the world coordinate system. This is a unitless vector and its magnitude is irrelevant. (IMSCoil/CylindricalCoodinateSystem:CylindricalCoordinateSystemRadialDirection)
