Static Field Modeling of a Halbach Rotor

Application ID: 14369

This model presents the static field modeling of an outward flux focusing magnetic rotor using permanent magnets. This magnetic rotor is also often called a Halbach rotor. The use of permanent magnets in rotatory devices such as motors, generators and magnetic gears is increasing. The accurate modeling of a permanent magnets fields is important. This model illustrates how to calculate the magnetic field of a 3D rotor by modeling only a single pole of the rotor using the symmetry feature.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
