Release Notes (v2018.x)

These release notes are for the CENOS version 2018.x

Release notes of CENOS v3.0

v2018.7.5 (June 13, 2019)

  • Improved accuracy of template results
    Achieved by improving automatic mesh generation

v2018.7.4 (June 12, 2019)

  • Multi-step scanning/moving
    Simulate multi-step processes, e.g., when inductor is moving forth and back, or it is standing still and moving afterwards. Read more

  • Time-dependent voltage
    It is possible to enter time-dependent voltage also in 3D simulations

  • Pre-filled template parameters
    When using template geometry, parameters are filled with the last known values

  • Anonymized usage statistics
    In order to prioritize software improvements, CENOS collects simple usage statistics in fully anonymized way

  • Fixed filter for ParaView: Hardened profile 3D

v2018.7.3 (May 9, 2019)

  • NEW: Continue from the last time step
    It is possible to continue from the last known calculated time-step if simulation has finished or was stopped by user

  • Inconel is added to Material library

  • Stranded coil
    Use stranded coil as domain type. Read more

  • Improved accuracy of energy economics
    This allows to calculate, e.g, inductance.

  • Improved adaptive time step
    Simulation time with adaptive time step is up to 50% faster now

  • Improved calculation stability
    More stable and faster convergence achieved by changes in the coupling of electromagnetic and thermal solvers

v2018.7.2 (April 15, 2019)

  • Instalation of third-party programs made easier

v2018.7.1 (March 20, 2019)

  • Added hardening profiles
    View 2D or 3D hardening profiles via new ParaView filters. Read more

Motion and scanning

v2018.7.0 (February 12, 2019)

  • NEW feature: Simulate induction with scanning
    Simulation of the process when a workpiece or an inductor is moving, i.e., scanning, is possible now. Read more

Motion and scanning

  • NEW feature: Run multiple simulations in batch
    Prepare multiple simulation cases and run them one after another automatically. Leave your computer to do the job at night. Read more

v2018.6.6 (January 7, 2019)

  • Fixed properties of “Medium carbon steel 1045”
    If you have used it in your projects, reselect it and redo calculations.

  • Fixed several stability issues

v2018.6.5 (December 4, 2018)

  • Faster post-processing
    For small to medium-size cases, the post-processing routine, which previously occurred after the calculation was done, now occurs simultaneously during the simulation. This significantly reduces the post-processing routine time.

  • View results of calculated time steps also if simulation has been stopped

  • Added “Magnetic Energy” values column in the post-processing results file
    These values are needed for coil inductance calculation.

  • Added depth parameter for 2D planar simulation
    Integral quantities in 2D planar case are now calculated relative to the depth.

  • Report an issue directly from Cenos software

v2018.6.4 (October 26, 2018)

  • Fixes regarding stability issues

v2018.6.3 (October 15, 2018)

  • Prepare a case for sharing
    With one click, prepare the case for sharing (with or without results).
