Create simulation with From CAD

You can import premade CAD files and prepare geometry for simulation directly into CENOS.

Generate air box and mesh automatically, and set up simulation without the need for manual geometry or mesh editing.

Select geometry building approach

To create geometry from premade CAD, in CENOS home window click From CAD.

From CAD

Click on the Folder icon to select and import CAD files.

From CAD

Create Air Box

Create air box automatically.

From CAD

Select inductor terminals as references for air box size.

Prepare volumes

IMPORTANT: For easier volume and surface selection and preparation, From CAD incorporates multiple useful tools.

From CAD

  • Select all - Selects all volumes or boundaries available for selection.
  • Show all - Turn object visibility on or off.
  • Merge - Merge or group multiple volumes or surfaces into one.
  • Unmerge - Split previously merged or grouped objects into their initial state.

Group and rename volume domains as needed.

From CAD

Prepare boundaries

Click Edit boundaries to enter boundary surface editor.

From CAD

Merge and rename boundaries for heat exchange and electromagnetic definitions.

From CAD

Choose role

To ease physics definitions, select the role of each volume here.

From CAD

After geometry has been prepared, click GO TO PHYSICS to enter physics setup.

From CAD

Define simulation parameters

Enter physical parameters

In SIMULATION CONTROL window define global parameters such as frequency, calculation time etc.

From CAD

In SIMULATION DOMAIN windows such as WORKPIECE define the physical parameters of each domain such as material, heat exchange, current etc.

From CAD

Post-processing

In the end of the calculation the post-processing tool ParaView will automatically open with a pre-set temperature state, and you will be able to see the temperature field distribution in the workpiece in the last time step.

Integral values

For integral values such as apparent power, induced heat and complex voltage you can use the .csv file, which comes along with the visual results. You can access it through Note button next to the Visualization block Play button.
