Linear motion simulation extends the transient eddy current
simulation module to include the effects of rigid body motion.
The model can have Cartesian geometry where motion can be in
both X and Y directions. The model can also be axisymmetric, where
the motion is restricted to the axial direction.
Windings in the model can be connected to external
circuits which may be defined through a circuit layout window.
Alternatively the transient simulation may be connected to the
Simulink system simulator.
User defined coupling to mechanical equations is available as
well as specification of functional drives to define the action of
electronic controllers accounting for position or current
Coupling to ordinary differential equations may also be added to
simulate other mechanical components connected to the moving part
in the electromagnetic model.
