    ELECTRIC POWER

    Alessandro Tornincasa

      Hi,

      I need to do a thermal simulation on an electromagnet similar to this:

      grab-electromagnets-20930-2955841.jpg

      The real object actually it's made of a series of elicoidal layers of steel in which there's current flowing, and some layers of insulating material.

      I need to calculate electromagnet at equilibrium with SolidWorks Simulation thermal solver.

      I know current flowing into the conducting layer, voltage, and electrical power.

       

      Are there any formulas in literature to convert an electrical power into thermal power to input in SolidWorks Simulation ?

       

      Thanks.
