Power grids need to be properly maintained in order to protect them from system failure. Engineers at ABB use multiphysics simulation to design instrument transformers and sensors that can withstand overvoltages and be used in submersible underground vault applications. Read More
To speed up the development process for a gas-insulated, metal-enclosed switchgear (GIS), while significantly reducing costs, Pinggao Group used COMSOL Multiphysics®. They also built a simulation application that enabled collaboration on the design throughout the organization. Read More
Electrical engineering students find it hard to visualize the electromagnetics concepts they are learning. To remedy this issue, a professor at Virginia Commonwealth University built specialized simulation applications, distributing them to students as part of the lesson plan. Read More
One of the goals of the Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) is to increase the brightness of synchrotron beams for the Advanced Photon Source particle accelerator. To do so, engineers from RadiaSoft LLC created simulation applications to design optimized synchrotron vacuum chambers. Read More
To design a "smart oven" with solid-state, convection heating, engineers at Illinois Tool Works (ITW) Food Equipment Group turned to multiphysics simulation and specialized applications. The finished product is able to cook food faster and more efficiently than conventional appliances. Read More
Researchers from the University of Campinas and Corning wanted to see how photoelastics and moving boundary effects work together to enhance (or suppress) Brillouin scattering in waveguides, optical fibers, and other nanophotonic structures. To do so, they turned to numerical modeling. Read More
Built by engineers at General Atomics, the DIII-D tokamak needs to achieve temperatures that are 10 times hotter than the core of the Sun to achieve nuclear fusion. To accomplish this, a novel heating system using a helicon antenna that can inject 1 megawatt of RF power is being designed ... Read More
U.K. National Grid bears responsibility for maintaining the high-voltage transmission network in the U.K. Determining accurate cable ratings (maximum load capacity while staying within temperature ranges) is a significant effort, since they have to maintain reliability, safety, and ... Read More
