Key features in JMAG-Designer Ver.15.0

Here are the key new features in JMAG-Designer Ver.15.0.

  • Case control usability has been improved, and parametric analyses can now be performed more efficiently.
  • A multi-objective optimization engine has been developed to explore designs of global and complex design space. The features to evaluate optimization results have also been improved. Functions to create Pareto curves, correlation graphs have been added.
  • A zooming analysis has been developed to cut out just a section of a model, create mesh, and perform an analysis for large scale models composed of multiple parts.
  • By following a hysteresis loop during a magnetic transient response analysis, loss evaluations accounting for energy balance are now possible.
  • Improved customizability offers users the ability to freely make customizations for items such as iron loss algorithms and power settings.

We hope you use the newest version of JMAG to perform even more efficient analyses for your needs.

Geometry modeling
  • Basic 2D/3D geometry such as boxes, spheres, spirals, polygons, and ellipses can be created by simply specifying parameters.
  • Jmdl files created with the Geometry Editor can now be merged and imported.
Material modeling
  • A function has been added to check BH curves, and then correct the curve so changes in permeability are smooth.
  • Electromagnetic steel sheets from Thyssenkrupp, soft magnetic composites from Höganäs, and neodymium magnets from Molycorp Magnequench have been added to the material database.
Mesh modeling
  • The extrusion direction of thin solid mesh can now be specified.
  • It is now easier to manually control mesh density. The division ratio can be specified when extruding region mesh.
Results evaluation
  • More graph editing functions have been implemented. The graph title and value axis notches can now be freely changed.
  • Conductor resistance, linkage flux, and inductance can now be output when using an FEM conductor.
Magnetic field analysis
  • A zooming analysis has been developed to cut out just a section of a model, create fine mesh, and perform an analysis for large scale models composed of multiple parts.
  • By following a hysteresis loop during a magnetic field transient response analysis, loss evaluations accounting for energy balance are now possible.
Structural analysis
  • Eigenvalue analysis can now be performed accounting for initial stress. Eigenvalue changes due to shrink fitting and press fitting can now be evaluated.
Distributed processing
  • Project files (.jproj file) can now be directly specified from JMAG-Scheduler and distributed processing for a coupled analysis can be performed.
  • The function checking job progress from a client is available, when running a job using a distributed processing system such as LSF and PBS.
Parametric / Optimization
  • Multi-objective genetic algorithms have been added to JMAG's optimization function. MATLAB's multi-objective genetic algorithms can also be used.
  • A Pareto curve can be approximately created in the early stages of multi-objective optimization.
  • The correlation between design variables and response values can now be verified with a response graph.
Multiphysics / Interface
  • Coupled analysis with Abaqus have been improved. Both Lorentz force and nodal force can be passed, and deformations can be accounted for in a two-way magnetic field and structural coupled analysis.
  • JMAG's times can now be synchronized with the time changes in an Abaqus Implicit analysis.

Other than the above, functions are added and enhanced.
Please see the materials below for details.
