Analysis of Actuators using Flux
Analysis of actuators using Flux
Flux is a finite element analysis tool for low frequency magnetic and electric fields. Flux also solves thermal conduction problems. Rigid body motion is included in Flux (rotating, translating or pivoting motions). External circuit connections make Flux the tool for electromechanical design including the power supply.
Through this course, the participants will discover how to leverage the electromechanical applications of Flux to analyze different types of actuators. Actuators include valves, positioning devices, indicators, safety equipment, contactors, voice coils, locks. The motion of actuators can be translating (eg. valve, injector), rotating (eg. indicator, valve) or pivoting (eg. contactor, relay).
