Transformer and Inductor Modelling with COMSOL Multiphysics

The presentation recording is now available on demand.

This free webinar will explore various approaches to transformer and inductor modelling and features a detailed step by step example how to model a transformer with COMSOL Multiphysics.

The Transformer plays a key role in the electrical grid as it allows for electrical power to be transmitted over long distances at high voltage and low current thereby minimising transmission loss. Electrical power typically passes through several transformer stages before reaching the consumer. Thus, the potential value of even minor improvements in transformer reliability and performance is huge. Deploying green energy sources like photovoltaic systems, wind power and wave power also poses new challenges to transformer technology. Transformer design and, more generally inductor design, are by nature true multiphysics problems as electrical and thermal effects are important and tightly coupled.

Scope of the webinar:

  • Learn what COMSOL Multiphysics is
  • Understand broadly why it is beneficial to take a multiphysics approach to simulation
  • How multiphysics simulation can be beneficial to transformer development
  • See how easy it is to model this application within COMSOL Multiphysics
  • Understand how this software can be used in your own projects.

Why Attend?

  • Gain a unique insight into simulation driven product development throughout many industries, focusing on the products of transformers and inductors
  • Discuss real industry case studies
  • Live demonstration of simulation process
