Simulating the Moving Parts of a Generator

Model ID: 2122


In this model, a rotor with permanent magnets and a nonlinear magnetic material rotates within a stator of the same magnetic material.

The generated voltage in windings around the stator is calculated as a function of time. COMSOL Multiphysics models the rotation with assemblies and identity pairs. The nonlinearity of the magnetic material is also taken into account using an interpolation function.

This model was built using the following:
