On the 25th of March 2021, EnginSoft participated as an exhibitor in an important webinar hosted by Fusion for Energy (F4E), called: “Fusion technology applications in advanced simulation and modelling”. This event was part of a wider F4E initiative - The Technology Transfer Program - which aims to promote the transfer of fusion technologies to European industry.
In the webinar EnginSoft was able to talk about its long-standing collaboration with F4E in the broad area of Electromagnetic FEM Analyses for the ITER components. EnginSoft’s presentation covered many of the technical details of its acknowledged “Solution for cost effective electromagnetic analysis”.
The main problem with a large Tokamak design is how to properly evaluate the Lorentz forces that form as a result of the coupling between the high intensity magnetic field and the currents that develop inside each metal component after a plasma disruption and/or the failure of the Coil System.
A disruption is a violent event that terminates the magnetic confinement of plasma. One of the magnetic effects of a disruption is the generation of large magnetic forces in the metallic structures surrounding the plasma. This phenomenon is associated with the sudden loss and displacement of the net plasma current, which induces an eddy current in the metallic structures.
EnginSoft’s cost-effective solution was successfully created in collaboration with F4E’s expert teams after numerous years spent developing and testing tools, algorithms and customized interfaces in each phase of the Electromagnetic FEM analysis workflow.
Over the past two decades, EnginSoft has achieved a high level of specialization in the analysis and design of a range of electromagnetic and electromechanical devices:
In all these applications, the tools developed with F4E as part of the “Solution for cost effective electromagnetic analysis” are particularly useful for:
There are many uses for the technologies and the FEM techniques that have been developed within this context in the broader universe of SBES for Electronics and so EnginSoft is proud to have been selected by F4E as one of its partners for the “Technology Transfer Program”.
This work presents the CFD model of an axial piston pump and compares it to a validated 0D model. The main objective of this study was to analyze the flow field inside the pump, focusing on the aspects that involved the main inner volumes, such as the filling and emptying dynamics in the piston chambers and the flow field inside the ducts.
