Controlling electric field distribution in high voltage components is critical to avoid excessive electric stress on the insulation and thus reducing the risk of insulation breakdown and damage to equipment. For subsea applications this is even more important due to the costs involved in accessing and replacing the damaged parts. This paper describes how COMSOL Multiphysics has been used for ...

High temperature super conducting (HTS) cables are gaining attentions for their ability to transmit more power compared to their convention counterparts with essentially no resistance and electromagnetic emissions. They are also appropriate for solving the grid congestion problem in the power corridors with their reduced size and weight. But the AC loss that occurs in the HTS cables reduces the ...

Cogging torque in permanent magnet motors and generators is characterized by a torque ripple. These torque fluctuations cause vibrations, noise and speed fluctuations. This paper presents finite element (FE) analyses results that show a previously unaddressed low frequency modulation of cogging torque ripple. The paper resulted in an analytical formulation of cogging torque with low frequency ...

Superconductors have the unique capability of trapping magnetic flux. This feature has the potential to enable and improve several applications including high power density rotating machines. Current material used as trapped flux magnets (TFM) is single domain YBCO that present numerous limitations interms of performance, stability and size. One way to overcome the limitations is to use thin ...

In our experiments with manipulating cells with DEP, we noted that some cells are constantly spining. By hypothesing that the cell spining is caused by the non-circular shape of the cell body and the off-centered location of its nucleus and that the rotation direction depends on the relative location of nucleus with respect to the electrical field, we found that the observed cell rotation was ...
