JMAG's thermal analysis capability allows the coupling of the magnetic field analysis with a thermal analysis with eddy currents, iron loss and joule losses of coil as heat sources. The magnetic field analysis can also include the temperature-varying properties of magnetic materials and conductors for a strong coupling.
The design of an induction heating system for high frequency quenching needs a coupled magnetic field and thermal analysis to show the temperature distribution inside the heated object and the time history of the temperature.
Temperature control is critical for electric devices like motors. A thermal analysis allows you to view the heat generation and temperature distribution caused by coil current, iron loss, and eddy currents in the magnet.
