Analysis of Magnets in Opera

Course Objective

This two day course covers Opera’s capabilities for designing and simulating magnet technology applications, typically for MRI and NMR magnet systems, particle accelerator magnets, electron beam lithography and microscopy, spectroscopy, ion implanters and others. Good familiarity with the Opera software is a prerequisite for this course.  The course includes:

Overview of magnet technology systems and applications

Coil modelling including complex coil structures and external circuits

Permanent magnets including modelling magnetization and demagnetization

Modelling and meshing: solution accuracy, using total and reduced potentials effectively, skin effect modelling

Fields and harmonics: characterising field distributions, analytic series expansions of fields, Fourier and Legendre series

Inductance calculations, stored energy and EMF calculations

Modelling Eddy currents

Power dissipation and thermal analysis

Calculating forces on coils, coupling electromagnetic and stress analysis

Shielding AC and DC fields

Superconducting systems including diamagnetic effects

Superconducting quench modelling using Opera-3d QUENCH

Accelerator Magnet Systems: multiple magnets array, particle trajectories
