High voltage and high power devices and equipment are the backbone of modern power transmission networks and systems. Such devices and equipment include switchgears, transformers, bushings, busbars, high voltage insulators, cables, corona rings, and power chokes. Their design is a daunting task for the power engineer due to the challenges and physical limitations that they pose, including:
All electric power phenomena such as transmission, dissipation, loss, and reflection are Maxwellian in nature and hinge on the knowledge and understanding of the electric and magnetic fields. All other auxiliary quantities such dielectric breakdown, eddy current, eddy loss, core loss, magnetic force, electric force, power loss, impedance, and inductance are derived from the main field quantities. Hence, the accurate computation of the fields is the clue to all of the above challenges and limitations that the power engineer faces. EMS with its seamless integration in SOLIDWORKS®, Autodesk® Inventor®, and Ansys SpaceClaim and multi-physics capabilities, is an accurate, powerful, and a must-have electric and magnetic fields simulator. Below is a list of power engineering examples that testify to the power and accuracy of EMS .
