ANSYS PExpert is a fantastic tool for the design, modeling, and analysis of transformers and inductors. Using a combination of classical and finite element analysis (FEA) techniques, ANSYS PExprt determines the core size and shape, air gaps, and winding strategy for a given power converter topology. What we and our customers have found very useful is the ability to then evaluate the magnetic design in ANSYS Maxwell to view such things as flux density in the core and current density distribution in the windings. Powerful stuff.
The first step in implementing ANSYS PExprt with ANSYS Maxwell is installing and configuring them correctly. We created a step-by-step guild for our ANSYS customers here in the Southwest, and thought others would find it useful.
