Hi everyone, I am working on permanent magnet synchronous generator. I want to do mechanical structural analysis of machine to have an idea of deformation in radial and tangential direction due to electromagnetic forces, which are computed through Maxwell analysis. I have trouble of mapping EM forces from Maxwell to Ansys Mechanical. Kindly brief me which method is accurate for mapping, direct mapping or lumped force method ( total force of each tooth of stator and rotor edges.) And I want to know which type of pressure, forces and boundary conditions are required to compute deformation  in PM synchronous machines. kindly share a workbench file (.wbpj) example regarding EM force mapping as well as deformation calculation in mechanical structural analysis of PMSG.

Hello. Is it possible to transfer forces from Maxwell to Explicit STR? I found in Knowledge Resources: Solutions #2056449 ("How to couple Maxwell and Autodyn to simulate electromagnetic forming") but it do not show user script.

We're working on getting more EBU (Maxwell) support on here. In the meantime I'm afraid you'll have to look in the documentation for answers.
