Multiple Coils in Same Winding – Interpreting Results (Maxwell)

    • donovankwong


      I have a magnetic transient model where I have multiple coils with a single sheet terminal inside them such that the coil is a self contained closed loop. All the terminals are assigned to a single AC (time domain) voltage winding excitation. 

      When defining the excitation:

      • Are the resistance and inductance values for a single coil or the sum of all the coils?

      • Is the voltage defined per coil, or in total?

      • What exactly is the meaning of the number of parallel paths?

      In the results:

      • Is the current the total going through all the coils, or for each coil?

      Thanks in advance for your help.

      coils are connected in series. RL also added in series.


      Voltage defined per winding. Winding may contain multiple coils


      for more info please refer to the help.
