Opera Simulation Software is a Finite Element Analysis software suite which allows users to perform simulations of electromagnetic (EM) and electromechanical systems in 2 and 3 dimensions. Opera complements the existing SIMULIA EM portfolio with its strength in low frequency simulation, which is extremely useful for the design of magnets, electric motors and other electrical machines.
Opera includes dedicated 2D and 3D pre- and post-processing environments for problem definition and results analysis. The Graphical User Interface (GUI) gives access to features that have been specifically tailored for electromagnetics and multi-physics design. Regularly performed actions can be programmed into parameterized macro-files.
The flexibility of Opera in adapting to user requirements has seen it being used successfully for a wide range of applications in different industries. The accuracy Opera provides is of paramount importance when looking at field homogeneities of parts-per-million in medical devices or particle accelerators. Advanced material modeling and solution procedures enable detailed studies of devices containing permanent magnets or superconducting coils. And application-specific front-ends help guide the users through the complex task of simulating and optimizing high-efficiency high-performance motors, generators and transformers.
