May 27, 2022 at 4:28 pmFFFFNSubscriberHello I'm running a Maxwell eddy current simulation where I have multiple coil terminals hooked up to a winding. I'd like to parametrically swap the direction of the current into some of the coil terminals, without having to remesh the simulation since I believe nothing is changing geometrically.
My first approach was to assign boolean variables in Rotate commands to select which coil terminals to rotate 180 degrees, but Maxwell treats these as geometry variables so it will not reuse the mesh. Is there a way to vary the coil terminal direction without using geometry variables?

1). Maxwell could not make the direction of current as a variable for the parametric analysis, but you could use a scripting to do it automatically.
2). To keep the same meshing, we could use "import mesh" feature, please check the manual for more information.
We could use one source model to generate the meshing, and make linking to keep the same mesh. At the target model, we need to enter "1" in number of passes if using eddy current or magnetostatics solver.
May 31, 2022 at 7:28 pmFFFFNSubscriberThank you for your help. I've implemented your 2nd suggestion based around importing meshes in my original setup with parametric rotation of coil terminals. While I don't yet know if the change I've made is superficial enough to not require a new mesh, I am able to avoid re-meshing.
