Electromagnetic and Electromechanical Simulation
Opera Simulation Software is a software package for finite element analysis in the design of motors, magnets and electrical machines. With low-frequency simulation capabilities, high fidelity, dedicated 2D/3D pre- and post-processing environments, a GUI specifically designed for electromagnetism and multiphysics design, programming regular actions into parameterized macro files, and customization, Opera is used in a wide range of applications in various industries. It could be, for example:
- Consideration of field homogeneities of parts-per-million in medical devices or particle accelerators;
- Detailed studies of devices containing permanent magnets or superconducting coils;
- Solving problems of modeling and optimization of highly efficient high-performance motors, generators and transformers.
With a set of specialized interfaces and advanced material modeling capabilities, users can solve these and other complex problems much faster and with better results.
Opera has been developed with a number of physics solvers. Each branch of physics has been developed to offer accurate and efficient solutions. Transfer of results quantities between physics can be automated and chained.
- Static Electromagnetics;
- Low Frequency Dynamic Electromagnetics;
- High Frequency;
- Electromagnetic Motion;
- Charged Particle;
- Stress Analysis;
- Thermal Analysis.
Build simulation models quickly
Components and assemblies can be imported from an existing CAD system or alternatively be created using Opera’s built-in modeller with its powerful ACIS geometry kernel. A key feature of Opera is its ability to define any dimension of a model as a parameter, allowing the user to perform ‘what-if?’ investigations and optimize the design model. The Opera model file contains a complete history of the commands that created the database enabling files to be ‘replayed’ and modified – this then delivers a template that is able to automate the design variations of standard products.
