Electromagnetic Modeling and Design of an Actuator

An electromagnetic actuator is a device that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy in the form of linear or rotational motion. The motion can be used, for example, to vibrate a speaker diaphragm, open and close an
electromagnetic valve, or open and close an electromagnetic relay.

A typical electromagnetic actuator consists of various components including coils, magnets, magnetic material, andother mechanical and electronic components for control. Designing a complex actuator system involving these
components can be challenging. Engineers and scientists can use finite element analysis (FEA) software to design and optimize these systems more efficiently.

In this webinar, guest speaker Nirmal Paudel of Veryst Engineering will demonstrate a workflow for designing an electromagnetic actuator using the COMSOL Multiphysics® simulation software and its parametric sweep and
optimization tools in both static and transient simulations.
