Acceleration Tokens, which are available as a Solver Process add-on for the SIMULIA CST portfolio licenses, can now be used in SIMULIA Opera 2022 in two ways:
Opera-3d solvers can be made parallel for multi-threaded solutions. This use of an Acceleration Token is designed to speed up individual Opera-3d solutions by making use of multiple CPU cores to perform certain stages of the solution.
Parameterized models can be run such that multiple solutions are run concurrently. Models which have been parameterized, so that several versions of the same model can be run to investigate a design, can now be run at the same time using Acceleration Tokens.
The licensed restriction on the number of threads that can be used by the Opera-3d solvers has been improved for users who have SIMULIA CST portfolio licenses. Multithread options are now included when solving using the Opera-3d solvers from the SIMULIA CST portfolio licenses. Additional parallel solving capabilities can be enabled using acceleration tokens.
New geometrical templates have been included for the existing types of electrical machines.
The functionality of importing a user-defined CAD geometry (via a .dxf file) to replace a machine component has been extended, allowing the import of:
rotors of Brushless machines
stators of Brushless, Induction, Wound Synchronous and Synchronous Reluctance machines
Geometries built using the OMD templates can now be modified, making use of the full modeling capabilities of Opera-2d. As long as the required components and parameters that define the model as an OMD rotating machine are maintained, the pre-defined OMD analyses can be run on the modified geometry.
