Capacitance Field Calculator Maxwell Electrostatics Simulation.

    • Ashishkumar Gupta

      Hi, I am doing Maxwell Electrostatics Simulation.

      So how do I evaluate Capacitance at a particular location/node/point?

      If I use the formula, it is C = Q/V. But how should I use it in calculator?

      In Electrostatics solver, capacitance is calculated between two conductors by simlating the electric field that arises when a voltage differential is applied.

      If you want to use field calculator, you can calculate the total electric charge on an object and divid the voltage value.

      • Qty -> D (load D vector into the calculator);
      • Geom -> Surface… (select the surface of interest) -> OK
      • Normal
      • Integrate
      • number...->scalar->value: (voltage value)->OK
      • /
