Solenoid with Motion Application


When a coil is excited, an electromagnetic force is induced causing the plunger to translate. This example treats this kind of phenomena. A motion study is setup using SW motion, then the Magnetostatic Study of EMS is coupled to it. The EMS solver and the motion solver will be communicating at each step to exchange information about the force and location of the plunger. EMS will calculate the force at the initial position then the force value is passed to the SW Motion, which in turn takes the force value, applies it to the plunger, calculates the new position and then sends it back to EMS. Then, EMS solver recalculates the force based on the new location and so on. Both solvers keep going back and forth until all steps are covered.
