  1. Hello, I would like to know how can I export a model from FluxMotor to Flux Skew. I saw it in the "03-Flux12.2_FluxMotor_NewFeatures-Altair-PL-SG-FM" file and I want to know if it is now available. I download the FluxMotor 2019.1 version and the icon not appear. Please let me know when will be available. Thank you in advance.
  2. Hello, I am doing the "SPM_Motor_Flux_3D.pdf" tutorial, and in page 15 there is a file named "Create_NonMesh_Coils_SPM.py" that I have to Run. I can not find it in my PC. Could you please tell me the exact directory where I can get it?, or much better, if you could send it to me I would appreciate it. (and let me know if I need another file to finish the tutorial) Thank you in advance.
  3. Hello, I am doing the IPM_Motor_Flux_3D.pdf tutorial from Flux 2019.1, and when I reach page 12 of the "3D Overlay to create the geometry" (after I enter all the values to Create Non Meshed Coil and press OK) I got the following error message: Error message: Failed convert object : class cast error. Desktop updating step failed. I can not skip it because the winding parameters are very important to the study that I am doing. Hope you can help me with this. Thank you in advance Best regards.
  4. Hi there! I'm calculating the resistance and the skin effect of different shapes of copper conductors at varying current & frecuencies. I started solving only with a frecuency multi-value scenario due to the fact that the solver trigger an error. I would appreciate some help. Thanks for all, Andoni Resistencia_Skin_Effect.zip
  5. Hello, I am trying to export a Flux geometry (of a rotor or a stator) to FluxMotor by following the "CreateFluxMotorInnerMagnet.pdf" file step by step, but placing parameters and references to the dimensions. When I get the Excel file (in FluxMotor Part Library), none of the parameters are shown referenced, simply the points are placed with coordinates in numbers. Basically, what I am looking for is to design a geometry in Flux and to be able to export it to FluxMotor, and being able to modify its dimensions like the ones that have predefined Fluxmotor. (e.g: be able to modify dimentions of W1, H, WM, TM, etc in FluxMotor with my geomettry exported from Flux) Thank you very much in advance
  6. All, I am new to flux simulation software. Would anyone please kindly advise if I can export the simulation result out of FLUX user interface as a CSV file format? Also, Please advise any help to learn post processing result files using the embedded python window in FLUX Balaji
  7. when we are using stranded coils in 2d models, i f we are not assiginnig any material to it. what will be the default material. thank you
  8. Dear all, I have a question about stranded coil conductors using non-meshed coils. I have performed two transient simulations with non-meshed coils in 3D for a transverse flux machine. For the first simulation I entered 100 mOhm in the field "Resistance Formula" of the stranded conductor. For the second simulation I entered 5 mOhm. The geometry as well as the material parameters and number of turns were the same for both simulations. For both simulations, the non-meshed coil was part of an electric circuit. I assumed that the resistance value is calculated via FLUX using the resistance formula R=rho*l/A and that the value entered in the "Resistance Formula" field (stranded coil conductor) does not matter if the specific resistance as well as the fill factor are specified for the non-meshed coil. However, the result for the evaluated resistance is different for both simulations. Preset value of 100 mOhm --> evaluated resistance = 106 mOhm Preset value of 5 mOhm --> evaluated resistance = 11 mOhm The evaluated resistance of the non-meshed coil is the same for both simulations: 3 mOhm. Why is there a difference between the evaluated value of the non-meshed coil and of the stranded conductor? I assumed, this should be the same? Therefore, could you please tell me, how the evaluated resistance of the stranded coil conductor is determined? Is it important, to enter the "right" value in the field "resistance formula"? Thank you in advance and best regards, Mandy
  9. I want to simulate a geometry using Acusolve (AcuConsole) and I have a condition of mass flux for my outflow boundary, how can setup like this? The Acu Console only gives me the option of pressure values. Thank you.
  10. hello, is there any possibility in Flux to make a queueing system for the computations of different models? For example I want to compute 2 different models with high computing times. First I want to compute the first one and after that the second one. Is there any queueing system like this in flux or have I to do it on my on? Thanks.
  11. Hello, These days, I work with Flux coupled with Activate for simulation of contactor dynamic behavior. The contactor has 2 coils, 3 switches. The 3 switch is controlled by activate. While the current of the 2 coils are used as sensor input for Activate. But when I start the simulation, at beginning the current in the coil seems reasonable. But after 5ms, or like this, the current and voltage on the coil starts to become very strange, and non-meaning, just noisy points, I don’t under stand why. I think, the activate only control the switch and do some control, very simple, the Flux finish FEM calculation. When I work with Flux alone, same calculation performed, no noisy points. For solver I use same as tutorial showed for activate and Flux coupling simulation. I hope I can get some help for this topic. Thanks. Activate_couple_Flux_simulation.docx
  12. Hello all, I am student of BE Mechanical Engineering, currently working on my final year project which is based on induction heating system to braze diamond tips to carbon steel rods for concrete core cutting bits. I am having difficulty in designing, simulating and selecting work coil for my project using FLUX. I have applied for its license file. I just want to know, has anyone here worked at it? So I can work with them or under their guidance and help to complete my project and to share knowledge? Thanks Allot. Best Regards, Hamza Shakoor
  13. Here is a quick video explaining how getting started with Flux software! You will discover: -Flux supervisor environment -where to find examples and tutorials -how to define options: language, macros, memory settings -where to have access to help and documentation
  14. Hello. I've been struggling with the simulation of a sensor consisting of a coil with a ferromagnetic core and a magnet. The main output to analyse is the voltage induced on the coil by a rotating target. I'm modeling the coil as stranded-coil conductor coupled with a series resistor (see attached circuit.png). When measuring the voltage across the coil, I'm looking at very high fluctuations in voltage (see attached results.png), if I take the derivative of the flux (flux.png) through the coil, the behavior is minimized a bit, but still present. Any ideas to improve this high variation? Thanks.
  15. The error code that I get executing "check physics" is: The lines :64 65 124 125 of the plan of periodicity have no linked discretisation. The mesh periodicity is not assured. The PERIODICITY PeriodicityNumberZaxis can not be taken into account Lines of the constraint without reference line: To obtain the same line mesh on lines, you may use a LINKED MESH_LINE I'm designing a quarter of a motor. The lines 64, 65, 124 and 125 correspond to the ones on the vertical axis. I'm using the periodicity setting to create the other quarters of the motor so that I get a full one. I've set Repetition number to 4, Offset to 0 and Odd periodicity. The mesh is automatically created with Mesh Faces. It has surface element with 98% of excelent quality and 2% of good. Checking the geometry doesn't give any errors. However I'm concerned that using cartesian and cilindrical coordinate systems on the same geometry may cause this error code. What do you think? I've tried creating a Linked Mesh Line. However It asks me to introduce a transformation that will define that Mesh Line, but I'm using a periodicity so it doesn't appear on the transformations menu. What can I do now? Thanks
  16. Hello, I am looking to do a vibro-acoustic (electro-magnetic FRF) analysis on a motor using FLUX. My aim is use electrical current/voltage as input to the motor and extract forces as output. Later map these forces onto the FE Model and look for noise levels and if possible mode shapes and stresses. Looking for help in this analysis as I am unsure about the procedure/work flow to be followed. Thanks in advance. Sandeepan
  17. Hello, Is there any command that clears the output window in FLUX? I want to simulate a parameter sweep with lots of different values for some geometric parameters. I have a script that sets the values of the parameters at each step, then meshes the geometry, simulates the configuration, exports and deletes the results, deletes the mesh, and repeats the process with new values. After several configurations are simulated, the application just crashes completely, and it closes the project without any error message. I have to mention that I am not using any command for closing the project in my script, so it should not happen. As I am not storing the results of the simulation in the RAM memory of my computer, I think that the problem comes when the output window in FLUX displays too many rows. Is there any command to clear the output window? Thanks in advance, Imanol
  18. Hello, I make a transient magnetics 3D model. Around the moving part I make a box with compressible area, like in the user guide: file:///mnt/nfs/clients/CAE/Flux/Flux12.3/Help/Flux/english/Website/index.html?FluxGuideDutilisation1 Is it necessary to make, in the modeler Context, an assembly between the moving part and the box with the compresible area? Because without I didn't get any force as result. Or is the result with the assembly therefore falsified? Thank you in advance.
  19. Hello, I have to model a coil with the resistance of 2Ohm. How can I realize it? The Application is "transient Magnetic 3D". In the Editor for a non meshed coil i can define the reistivity of the coil. But I only know th resistance of it. I can't use the formula resistance=resistivity*length/A because I don't know the length of the wire. In the circuit Editor conextI use a coil conductor. There I can define a resistance. Is this the same? Thanks.
  20. Hi, everyone This may seem a dumb question. I need to do some repetitive work in Flux. I know I can use the python editor to in Flux to run some commands, but what I am trying to do is to use python IDE to run the python commands to load FLU project and of course do other stuff such as changing parameter and post processing, without having to open Supervisor to launch the project and do work in Flux as what people usually do. I can not find any useful material related to this...so if someone can tell me how to do this, or give an example/tutorial, it would be of great help. Thanks! PS: I've tried similar work by using MATLAB, but changing the python command into MATLAB command is really hideous work... Kind regards, Qibin Chen
  21. Hi, How compute the correct behaviour of an anisotropic magnet in 3D during the solve? Grazie!
  22. The macros enable the user to regroup the frequently used commands in an extension integrated into the software. You can build up a macro instead of manually executing a series of repetitive actions in Flux, which you will then be able to call regularly. A macro is interesting because it can encapsulate within a new command a series of repetitive operations and thus improve the quality and efficiency of the user-software interaction. Concretely, a macro file (*.py) is a text file, which defines the macro-function in the PyFlux language. It receives (upon entry) one or more parameters and executes (upon exit) a series of predefined actions. It is possible to use the macros provided with Flux or to create your own macros. All macros provided with Flux are open sources, to help you to create a macro fitting exactly your expectation. The list of macros provided with Flux is available in C:\Altair\Extensions\Macros\macros_list_EN.pdf. The moste recent one are described with more details in the attached document "New_Flux_macros_2016". New_Flux_macros_2016.pdf
