Flux provides a complete and versatile postprocessor enabling the analysis of results from multi-parametric solving. It gives access to various quantities such as:
Potential, flux density, temperature, electric and magnetic fields
Global quantities: magnetic flux, inductances, stored energy
Iron losses, Joule losses in conductors, skin effect visualization
Quantities on electrical components: current, voltage, power, inductance
Extraction of RLC values of conductors and export of equivalent circuits
Mechanical quantities: position, velocity, force, torque, speed
Because Flux is used in global design workflows, it can be easily connected to other software, being for multiphysics analysis, optimization or system-level simulation. Flux is able to import meshes from SimLab or HyperMesh, allowing to deal with complex 3D CAD input files in an efficient way. The connection to PBS will let you take advantage of the full power of remote HPC clusters.
