During the course of the ПЕС 2013 Conference participants will be able to hear a presentation by Dr. Molnár László from the eCon Engineering Kft entitled: “Bus bar analysis in ANSYS Environment“.

In this project we focused on the mechanical deformation and stresses on bus bar. This system is loaded with 7 kA sinusoidal current on frequency of 60 Hz. This loading induces eddy current in the bus bar causing it to heat up. The whole physical phenomena will be handled by numerical simulation technology using ANSYS.

There is showed to transfer the resulting losses to ANSYS Mechanical for thermal analysis. The received temperature distribution will be used in the following mechanical analysis to get the stress and deformation information of the bus bar. This project demonstrates a comprehensive coupled simulation solution starting with an electromagnetic calculation and continue with thermal and mechanical simulations.
