Webinar Overview

Adrian Scott received his masters degree in electrical engineering at the University of Wales, Cardiff in 1996. He is the Market Development Manager for CST’s low frequency software solutions.

Wireless chargers, sensors, current limiters: all these devices rely on inductive components to fulfill their purpose. In the mass market, cost and functional efficiency requirements are of paramount importance. 

This webinar will show how electromagnetic field simulation is commonly applied to the design and analysis of such devices to determine optimal coil topology and size and study the effect of installation environment on performance. It will also show how the shape can be optimized for reduced core size, losses and temperatures to increase device efficiency. Critical features and considerations in the simulation process such as the appropriate choice of solver, core loss calculation method and ferrite material models will also be discussed.
