Ansys Electronics Desktop (AEDT) provides a comprehensive environment for the design and analysis of electronic components. AEDT offers multiple design types that are required to do a full system analysis. Ansys Q3D Extractor is a 3D quasi-static electromagnetic (EM) simulation software tool that calculates fields, equivalent circuits, S-parameters, inductances, resistances, and capacitances. 

This course introduces you to the Ansys Q3D design type in Ansys Electronics Desktop. This course provides the step-by-step procedures required for analysis using AEDT Student version. It is the same procedure used for the commercial version. More details about this student version can be found here.

This course covers the workflow required to simulate a model in  Q3D extractor using an on-chip spiral inductor as an example.

Ansys Electronics Desktop or simply AEDT provides a comprehensive environment for the design and analysis of electronic components. AEDT offers multiple design types that are required to do a full system analysis. Ansys HFSS is one of the design types integrated in AEDT which is a high-frequency simulation software used for the design and analysis of high-frequency electromagnetic components. HFSS offers various types of solvers to suit for various applications. It provides wide variety of reports ranging from 2D rectangular plots to 3D field plots inside the complex geometries which will help in understanding the electromagnetic concepts. Ansys HFSS can be used to design simple as well as complex simulation models and hence it is required to know how to use the tool for an efficient analysis. This course provides step by step procedure required for analysis using AEDT student version. The steps and procedure shown in this course are not limited to student version alone but can also be used for commercial version. More details about this student version are found here. In this course, we will demonstrate the analysis of different types of waveguides such as simple waveguide, stacked waveguide, twist and bent waveguides using WR-15 standard waveguide as example.

Ansys Maxwell is an electromagnetic simulation tool that is integrated into the Ansys Electronics Desktop (AEDT). Maxwell is used for analyzing low-frequency electronic devices and machines or when simulating with materials that have a nonlinear BH curve or material anisotropy.
We will create and analyze both a 3D and 2D model of an electromagnetic fail-safe brake system using a DC magnetostatic solver in Maxwell. All the necessary steps required to perform a Maxwell simulation are discussed.

 

In this course, the Ansys Maxwell Eddy Current solver and electrothermal two-way coupling between Ansys Maxwell and Ansys Icepak will be discussed.
This course starts with the simulation of an electromagnetic brake (EMB) using the Maxwell Eddy Current solver. It also covers the simulation workflow required to perform electrothermal analysis using Maxwell and Icepak inside Ansys Electronics Desktop (AEDT) Student version. Finally, we will see the temperature rise in parts of the EMB by changing the source parameters.
