[more ▼] Co-simulation opens new opportunities to combine mature ElectroMagnetic Transients (EMT) and Phasor-Mode (PM) solvers, and take advantage of their respective high accuracy and execution speed. In this paper, a relaxation approach is presented, iterating between an EMT and a PM solver. This entails interpolating over time the phasors of the PM simulation, extracting phasors from the time evolutions of the EMT simulation, and representing each sub-system by a proper multiport equivalent when simulating the other sub-system. Various equivalents are reviewed and compared in terms of convergence of the PM-EMT iterations. The paper also considers the update with frequency of the Thévenin impedances involved in the EMT simulation, the possibility to compute the EMT solution only once per time step, and the acceleration of convergence through a prediction over time of the boundary variables. Results are presented on a 74-bus, 23-machine test system, split into one EMT and one PM sub-system with several interface buses.

[more ▼] The development of high-order computational methods for solving partial differential equations on unstructured grids has been underway for many years. Such methods critically depend on the availability of high-quality curvilinear meshes, as one bad element can degrade the solution in the whole domain. The usual way of generating curved meshes is to first generate a (high-quality) straight-sided mesh. Then, mesh entities that are classified on the boundaries of the domain are curved. This operation introduces a "shape-distortion" that should be controlled. Quality measures allow to quantify to which point an element is well-shaped. They also provide tools to improve the quality of meshes through optimization. In this work we propose an efficient method to compute several quality measures for curved elements, based on the Jacobian of the mapping between the straight-sided elements and the curved ones. Contrary to the approach presented in "A. Gargallo-Peiró, X. Roca, J. Peraire, and J. Sarrate. Distortion and quality measures for validating and generating high-order tetrahedral meshes. Engineering with Computers, pages 1–15, 2014.", which relies on an L2-norm over the elements, we compute the actual minimum and maximum of the local quality measure for each element. The method is an extension of previous works on the validity of those elements (A. Johnen et al., 2013). The key feature is that we can adaptively expand functions based on the Jacobian matrix and its determinant in terms of Bézier functions. Bézier functions have both properties of boundedness and positivity, which allow sharp computation of minimum or maximum of the interpolated functions.

[more ▼] Classically, domain decomposition methods (DDM) for time-harmonic electromagnetic wave propagation problems make use of the standard, low order, Nédélec basis functions. This paper analyzes the convergence rate of DDM when higher order finite elements are used for both volume and interface discretizations, in particular when different orders are used in the volume and on the interfaces.

[more ▼] A new indirect quadrangular mesh generation algorithm which relies on sequential decision-making techniques to search for optimal triangle recombinations is presented. In contrast to the state-of-art Blossom-quad algorithm, this new algorithm is a good candidate for addressing the 3D problem of recombining tetrahedra into hexahedra.

[more ▼] The paper discusses the sensitivity analysis for the shape optimization of a nonlinear magnetostatic system, evaluated both by direct and adjoint approaches. The calculations rely on the Lie derivative concept of differential geometry where the flow is the velocity field associated with the modification of a geometrical parameter in the model. The resulting sensitivity formulas can be expressed naturally in a finite element setting through a volume integral in the layer of elements connected to the surface undergoing shape modification. The accuracy of the methodology is analyzed on a 2D model of an interior permanent magnet motor (IPM), and on a 3D model of a permanent magnet system.

[more ▼] In this paper, a direct and an adjoint analytic sensitivity analysis for a nonlinear magnetostatic system is obtained, in the context of shape optimization for any design function. The calculations are based on the material derivative concept of continuum mechanics. The resulting sensitivity formula can be expressed as either a volume integral or as a boundary integral along the interface where shape modification occurs. A method for the calculation of the design velocity field and mesh updating scheme is introduced as well. The accuracy of the methodology is analysed on an inductor system, suggesting that the volume integration technique should be preferred. All methods are freely available for further testing in the open source environment GetDP/Gmsh.

[more ▼] The aim of this paper is to compare several domain decomposition schemes for nonlinear, coupled electromechanical problems. Both staggered and monolithic electrostatic/elastic formulations are combined with an overlapping domain decomposition method applied either to the uncoupled, linear staggered resolutions or to the monolithic nonlinear system. The influence of the elastic waves frequency, of the electrostatic potential and of the mesh on the convergence rate is investigated on a simple 2D model of a vibrating micromembrane array.

[more ▼] Finite element models of increasing accuracy are proposed for the study of the capacitive behaviour of wound magnetic components. Simple models, which are based on the classical assumption of a decoupling between electric and magnetic fields, are first described. Formulations which enable such a coupling are then presented. The models are tested on various coreless inductors, made of round conductors or copper sheets. The results are discussed and compared with experimental data measured with an impedance analyzer.

[more ▼] Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD) is an efficient model order reduction technique for linear problems in computational sciences, recently gaining popularity in electromagnetics. However, its efficiency has been shown to considerably degrade for nonlinear problems. In this paper, we propose a reduced order model for nonlinear magnetodynamic problems by combining POD with an interpolation on manifolds, which interpolates the reduced bases to efficiently construct the desired solution.

[more ▼] This paper proposes a reduced-order model of power electronic components based on the proper orthogonal decomposition. Starting from a full-wave finite-element model and several snapshots/frequencies, the reduced-order (RO) model is constructed. Local field values (e.g. magnetic flux density, electric current density, magnetic or electric field) and global quantities (e.g. characteristic complex impedance, joule losses) can be determined for the intermediate frequencies with a very low computational cost and high accuracy. Particular attention is paid to the choice of the most suitable snapshots by means of three different greedy algorithms, the performance of which is compared. We adopt an automatic greedy algorithm that depends only on the RO model. [less ▲] Detailed reference viewed: 36 (10 ULg) |
