In ANSYS Maxwell, I have created a 3D model and can successfully plot several parameters. However, when I add MagFlux as an additional plot, the simulation errors out towards the end and comes back with error reporting info (it says save data or else info will be lost, etc, must close). How do I go about this problem?
Also, I tried clearing all cache and lock files and restarted the software and still encountered the same problem during further attempts.

I realized that I was using magnetostatics rather than transient as intended for my transformer model, which likely caused my error. Thanks anyways!
EDIT: Please see my next response, having issues still

Info: I’m modeling a single-phase transformer in an air domain. It has a ferrite core, copper windings, and a plastic bobbin. The current excitation is AC with a frequency of 200 kHz and an amplitude of 75 A. I’ve defined a mesh for the core and one for the windings.

I am now unable to plot several quantities such as inductance and field overlays such as the B field, etc. Loss plots show up. So do design plots. Winding plots other than inductance such as flux linkage show up too. The order of magnitude of some of the quantities are off too.
How can this be resolved? Thanks!

Inductance calculation in Transient needs be turned on in Design setting. Top menu bar--> Maxwell 2D->Design settings...->matrix computation->check "enable"->resolve the simulation.

Thank you. Everything seems to be working now.
