Parameter stepping in coupled analysis (Fluent + Thermal-Electric)

      I would like to simulate a Peltier module which is from the hot side cooled by a water radiator. On the cold side is a PCB enclosed in a metal case with air.


      The Peltier module is modeled with the Thermal-Electric solver.

      The other parts with the Fluent solver.


      The model works great. When I set up some electric current through Peltier and water flow in the radiator in the radiator, I get a nice realistic temperature distribution.

      The sketch:

      Does the solution converge in these 15 steps? how long is the step?n

      This is Steady-State simulation! I just want to step electrical current through Peltier. For convergence, I need some hundred iterations for each step.nI can do it manually which means I can set this current to 0.1 amps run the simulation save the results, then set it to 0.2 amps run the simulation, and save the results.... and so on until 1.5 amps.nnThis is what I want to do automatically, step through the current parameter in Steady-state two-way coupled analysis.n
