CEDRAT, a European leader in simulation technology, has developed Flux® 11.1 — the latest version of its Flux® electro-magnetic simulation software program. This software package provides electromagnetic and thermal physics simulations in 2D and 3D, producing accurate results efficiently, enabling users to optimise electrical devices.

With 30 years’ experience in electrical engineering, CEDRAT is the European leader in simulation technology and the developer of Flux® , a software suite that specialises in electromagnetic and thermal analysis for modelling and optimising electrical devices such as motors, transformers, actuators and sensors. Flux® is also relevant to equipment that is used in electric-fields studies, or that has heat-treatment applications.

CEDRAT’s tools are used by manufacturers to speed up the development of reliable and optimised solutions for a range of electro-magnetic devices, including drives and controls in motors and even smart grids.

Flux® was developed by CEDRAT in partnership with G2ELab, i.e. the Grenoble Electrical Engineering Laboratory, in Grenoble (south-eastern France) . The software provides comprehensive electrical, magnetic and thermal analysis of devices using the finite element method (FEM). Like a virtual laboratory, Flux® allows users to perform experiments and compare the results obtained under different conditions, therefore saving time and reducing costs by dispensing with costly prototypes.

CEDRAT has announced the release of Flux® 11.1, which is the latest version of Flux®. Compared with previous versions, Flux® 11.1 integrates various improvements for processing data in a unified and customisable environment, both in 2D and 3D. The geometry and mesh features are enhanced, allowing fast, realistic and reliable simulations to be carried out.

The company has also made improvements to pre-processing data that allow the solving of problems in 2D for use in 3D, while giving easy access to quantities for creating both 2D and 3D curves and for exporting force densities. In addition, Flux® 11.1 is customisable, allowing the software to be programmed to usage patterns.

Flux® 11.1 provides a range of benefits, including an accelerated 3D solving process that uses new linear solvers MUMPS and Pardiso; a faster and improved convergence for complicated cases; advanced simulation techniques; and, finally, a progressive start-up in 2D and 3D with time-step adaptation for accurate transient calculations in less time.

Flux® 11.1 is suitable for innovative projects in fields such as electric mobility and renewable energies. It is the only piece of software that offers such versatile coupling between the finite element, its drive and control, and the dimension system. This additional capacity makes it possible to validate the overall behaviour of the electrical object by taking its environment into account.

Objects that involve thin walls are particularly difficult to model in finite elements. Flux® has often stood out thanks to its ability to treat solid elements, such as shell elements (in marine applications, for instance). This ability allows modelling that is both accurate and inexpensive in terms of computing time.

The latest features of Flux® 11.1 now make it possible to simulate shell elements, such as aircraft cabins that have openings, while they are connected to an electric circuit. This feature opens new doors to low-frequency electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) analyses, for example.

About CEDRAT

CEDRAT, based in Grenoble (south-eastern France), develops and sells engineering software packages, including Flux® for electromagnetic and thermal analyses in finite-element applications.

CEDRAT has developed GOT-It, for device-and-systems optimisation; InCa3D, for conductor impedance and near-field simulation; Portunus, for mechatronic system simulation; Motor-CAD, for the thermal optimisation of motors; SPEED , for sizing electric motors; and, finally, PSCAD, for power-systems simulation.

CEDRAT organises training programmes based around the company’s software, and offers the specialist services of its own design-and-development in-house team.

The company will attend the following trade shows, in Europe (below):

• HANNOVER MESSE 2013, from 8 to 12 April 2013, in Hannover (Germany);

• CWIEME, from 4 to 6 June 2013, in Berlin (Germany);

• EMC Europe, from 2 to 6 September 2013, in Bruges (Belgium).
