A Multiphysics Approach to Magnetron and Microwave Oven Design

Using a multi-solver workflow

Magnetrons are widely used as RF power sources because they offer high energy conversion efficiency (around 75%) at a low cost. The magnetrons used in microwave ovens operate on the same frequency band as Wi-Fi equipment, and the radiation they release can interfere with the operation of computer networks and mobile communications
