Analysis of Eddy Current Density using ANSYS MAXWELL Software
Keywords:Eddy Current, Finite Element Method, Magnetic Levitation
This paper are proposed the simulation of eddy current density over the non-ferrous materials. Correlation between that circulating in non-ferrous magnetic material can stimulate the suspension force. Some simulation have been done using Finite Element Method (FEM) that provided in ANSYS Maxwell simulator software in order to illustrate the formation of . The 3-dimensional shape of current-carrying coil suspended 1cm over non-ferrous conductor is sketch up to emphasize or illustrate the existence of vertical magnetic forces. From simulation, the productivity of was clearly appears on the top of conductorâ€™s surface whose interpretation from a current-carrying coil reaction. The causality is dependently on conductor properties, input frequency of current AC source, and conductor thickness that supposedly influence the amount of . From simulation shown the higher thickness and frequency of AC current will encourage the formation of . It also can conclude the high magnetization enable to conduct more .
