Application note

Electro-Magnetic or EM simulation is used to design and study the working of DC linear actuators. It helps to compute the force produced by the work coil, determinate the characteristic of the implemented spring, choose the right materials and optimize the geometric parameters of the actuator.

EMWorks provides both 2D and 3D FEM solutions fully embedded inside SOLIDWORKS. 2D FEM solution is recommended for initial iterative designs because it is quick to perform these types of simulations. A 3D FEM solution is used to confirm the final model parameters before finalizing the design and creating a prototype for field testing.

In this article several designs of DC actuators are analyzed using both EMWorks2D and EMS. Figure 1 shows the 2D meshed model of a linear DC actuator while Figure 2 shows the field lines plot of the magnetc flux density generated by the coil. Figure 3 illustrates a comparison of the force computed by EMWorks2D and ref [1]
