The AC/DC Module sets the stage for modelling the performance of capacitors, inductors, motors, and micro sensors. Although these devices are principally characterised by Electromagnetics, they are also affected by other types of physics. Thermal effects, for instance, can change electrical properties of materials, while electromechanical deflections and vibrations in generators need to be fully understood during any design process.
The capabilities of the AC/DC Module span Electrostatics, Magnetostatics, and electromagnetic quasi-statics with unlimited couplings to other physics.
When considering your electrical components as part of a larger system, the AC/DC Module provides an interface with SPICE circuit lists where you choose circuit elements for further 2D or 3D Finite Element modelling. Then you can take your analysis beyond the conventional by running a single simulation of a mixed system of lumped and high fidelity models.
