I'm new to Ansys Maxwell and have been trying to find the EMF generated in a coil placed closer to a current-carrying wire. Can anyone help me to understand how I can change the number of turns in the nearby coil, please? As per my knowledge, the number of coils will affect the induced EMF in the coil. At first, I used a solenoid method but the number of turns is limited in that model since it visually displays the turns and occupies so much space. So, is there any other method to carry out my experiment? Any help in this regard is much appreciated.

Hello, in order to create a coil, I would strongly suggest to either to draw a helix or create it directly from the User Defined Primitive. Therefore, you would be able to change the number of turns easily.

Thank you Timos for your reply. I tried using a segmented Helix. The only problem I faced was the length of the coil when using a higher number of turns. It would exceed the drawing limits of my design. Would usually surpass the length of the wound core. Do you think it wouldn't affect my design?
