Active Power vs Joule Losses

Recommended Posts

Dear sir/madame,


This topic arises using the "Computation / On physical Entity / Compute" tool in a solid conductor.

Im my humble experience with this software, I've been wrong on what it means the Active Power & the Joule losses: Until now, the calculated active power was higher than the joule losses that is why I thought that the Joule Losses were a fraction oc the active Power. The thing is that in some actual simulations, I witnessed the opposite.


As a consequence, I would like to know how flux calcules and what takes into account in this two losses.


Best regards,

Dear Andoni,


About the difference between active power and Joule losses I think you will find an explanation in Flux help, more precisely:


where C:/ProgramFiles/Altair/2019/ should be replaced by your Flux installation directory.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,
