Paper Abstract

The combination of Network Methods and Finite Element Methods on user level is a time-efficient method for the simulation of dynamic behavior of electromechanical systems. Combined simulation can be structured into five areas of application: determination of network structures with FE-simulations, determination of network parameters with FEsimulations, inclusion of network elements in FE-models, inclusion of equivalent network structures in FE-models and simulation of models incorporating different model levels. The capabilities of the combined simulation are demonstrated by sample applications. Combined Simulation is suited for a better system insight and fast simulation-based optimization.
