Needs a thermal modeling software for my design
I have a design of a copper bobbin wounded with a copper wire (wire acts as a solenoid). A small current will pass through the wire. I need to do a thermal analysis (in order to know the temperature values at each position) for this design when the current passes through it.
I tried Icepak in Ansys electronic desktop (student version) for my thermal analysis. But I couldn't get reasonable results. I have a few questions to ask.
- Is Icepak designed only for the electronic circuits thermal analysis?
- Out of HFSS, Q3D, Icepak, and Maxwell, which one is the best for the thermal analysis in my design?
I really appreciate any of your help.
