Modeling of an Electric Generator in 3D

Application ID: 20191

This application illustrates how to model an electric machine, such as a generator, motor, or drive, by exploiting its sector symmetry to reduce the size of the problem. The machine being studied is a simplified electric generator in 3D, based on the geometry used in the generator_2d application.

The application uses the Rotating Machinery, Magnetic interface. It is recommended to have a look at the model rotatingmachinery3d_tutorial before proceeding with this application.

This model is also featured and explained with further details in the following blog post: Guidelines for Modeling Rotating Machines in 3D.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
