I want to simulate the behavior of a solenoid valve. What function should I use to see during the simulation (animation) how the plunger moves,how it is attracted and then released by the coil?
It is possible to see this translational movement?
After you run the simulation(in Maxwell), you can plot the fields.
Right-click on the field and select animate and follow the onscreen setup.
you will be able to see the plunger movement with field variation.
Thank you for your support.But how can I get this move in maxwell? (Before simulating the program).
What conditions should be used, or certain translation areas defined?
To check the animation before simulating your model.
1) Define a variable associated with the plunger motion and set up a parametric for that variable.
Now right click on the modeler window select View>Animate
On the next screen make sure the parametric setup is selected. click ok to see the animation.
