In this paper an axisymmetric model of annular linear electromagnetic induction pumps using numerical methods and four approaches (two transient and two quasi-stationary) with different complexity is studied. Comparison of integral characteristics is performed between numerical approaches and also with analytic estimations. Distributions of physical parameters over length and height of channel ...

Technical University of Lodz, Lodz, Poland
Conclusions about the influence of paper insulation on the electrical discharge initiation in mineral oil may be drawn on the basis of experimental studies. However, in some cases, these conclusions may be supported by electrical field analysis. Determination of maximum values of electrical field stress in the vicinity of model electrode setups may bring a new information about initiation ...

High temperature superconductors (HTS) are promising candidates for electrical power applications. However, the superconductors exhibits energy loss known as AC loss when exposed to time varying external magnetic field and/or transport current. In this paper, AC loss in an elliptical Ag sheathed Bi2223 (HTS) tape is calculated using the time dependent PDE mode of COMSOL Multiphysics. The HTS ...

Levitation has found important applications in several areas of engineering, from microgravity to transportation systems. Electrodynamic levitation consists of the interaction of a varying in time magnetic field – provided by an alternating voltage supplying a coil or a moving permanent magnet. The main applications of this technique are MagLev trains and magnetic bearings. The electrodynamic ...

The transducer's construction used for current measurement in medium voltage power lines for current values kA is shown. The transducer involves magnetic circuit with a gap in which a MEMS structure with a movable cantilever is placed. The beam is made of silicon with a NiFe layer. The beam with the ferromagnetic layer is deflected due to effecting magnetic field. The deflection of the beam is ...

Direct nose-to-brain drug delivery circumvents the blood-brain-barrier and has multiple advantages over intravenous delivery. However, its application is limited by the extremely low delivery efficiency to the olfactory region. This study evaluated the feasibility of targeted drug delivery with electrophoretic forces in a 2D human nose model. COMSOL Multiphysics® AC/DC, CFD, and Particle Tracing ...

The application of pulsed electric fields (PEF) is well known in the food industry as an advanced technology for mass transfer improvement. A new potential adaptation area of PEF could be extracting a valuable antioxidant called polyphenol from wet olive pomace (WOP) which is a by-product of olive oil production. The modelling includes the PEF effects on the WOP which is flowing through a ...
