Release offers new capabilities for the design of electromagnetic devices.

Ansoft Corporation (Pittsburgh, PA) announces two new updates Maxwell v12, which is the company’s electromagnetic (EM) field simulation software used for the design and analysis of 3D/2D structures (motors, actuators, transformers, and other electric and electromechanical devices common to automotive, military/aerospace, and industrial systems) and RMxprt v12, a specialized software program dedicated to the design of electric machines.

Maxwell v12 includes a new 3D electric transient solver that solves time-varying electric fields due to a transient disturbance, such as lightning strikes on electrical equipment. The new version also is equipped with advanced model healing capabilities. This productivity feature will automatically identify and resolve potential problems with geometry imported from popular CAD systems and streamline the solution process.

This next-generation desktop architecture has been added to the Maxwell 2D solvers; the easy-to-use interface offers new usability enhancements, including advanced 2D modeling, powerful scripting capability, and enhanced post-processing.

RMxprt has been upgraded with a new capability to solve three-phase non-salient synchronous machines, automated project setup for Maxwell and a new wire library allowing motor designers to study the effects of various wire types of a design prior to physical prototype creation.

Maxwell v12 and RMxprt v12 are available for Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Server 2003 Standard Edition, XP Professional x64 Edition, Server 2003 Standard x64 Edition, Red Hat Enterprise Linux v3 (32- and 64-bit), and v4 (32- and 64-bit), SuSE Linux Enterprise Server v9 (32- and 64-bit), and Solaris versions 8, 9, and 10.
