Harmonic analysis and Speed Sweep in Maxwell 2D

Hello everyone,

Problem Statement

I've recently done harmonic analysis of a motor model by coupling with ansys electromagnetic in workbench. This analysis was done for a fixed speed of the motor. What I want to do is sweep the speed of the motor and do the harmonic analysis simultaneously. 

What I've tried

I have tried changing the speed like the picture shown above (after setting speed as a variable through optimetrics in Maxwell 2D). But this doesn't work. Throws me an error saying "unable to change external field data of type Maxwell2DSolution from ...AnsoftTransferData.xml". I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here.

Any suggestion on how to perform this speed sweep for the model and do the harmonic analysis at the same time would be highly appreciated.

We don't have any Maxwell cover on here at the moment, please can you talk to your supervisor and see if they can access the Customer Portal to ask for support? Otherwise you'll need to wait for the community.

Best wishes,
