How to use simulation to ensure switchgear functions to standards such as IEC 61439, incorporating effects such as: short circuit withstand strength, degree of protection of enclosures (arc fault), temperature rise, clearances and creepage distances, Dielectric properties of insulation, electromagnetic compatibility EMC.
This blog offers a detailed overview of the workflow to conduct virtual testing of Electrostatic Discharge using Ansys EMA3D – as early as possible in your design cycle once your PCB design is available – helping to reduce expensive recalls and warranty issues due to ESD failures in sensitive electronics.
Learn about Ansys EMA3D to account for cables and cable assemblies when accurately simulating EMI/EMC effects on larger platforms, such as aircraft and full vehicles.
Ansys Sherlock helps automate PCB testing to accurately predict failure risks due to thermal, mechanical and manufacturing stressors using a process that is much faster than traditional simulation due to rapid ECAD translation and a component library helping you to create a complete mechanical model of your PCB.
Trends such as such as Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things (IoT), drones, smart home technology and autonomous vehicles are continuing to push PCB technology to its limits. Electronics engineers are now needing to focus on more than just the electromagnetics aspects of PCB design, and are increasingly concerned about power consumption, thermal & vibration issues linked to reliability concerns in harsh environments.
A wide range of industries are taking their single physics simulation tools and moving towards a multiphysics approach which couples two or more solvers to close the gap between simulation and reality. Rotational electromagnetic machines in particular use all three of the main physics areas to design products which achieve increasingly high performance and reliability…
