The software is used for calculation of coupled problem that consist of axisymmetrical non-linear magnetic field calculation and electrical circuit calculation.

Coupled transient 2D finite element method and mesh current method are used for solving a wide range of the problems concerned to power transformers:

  • calculation of winding current distribution in rectifier or HVDC transformers having various type of rectification circuit diagrams and windings connections;
  • calculation of winding current distribution and impedances in power transformers;
  • calculation of no-load current harmonic decomposition in power transformers;
  • calculation of Z0 impedance of power transformers;
  • calculation of power transformer in-rush currents.



Calculation types
Toolbar “Calculation” is intended for input of the calculation parameters (Figure.4.1-1), and for view and analysis of results (Figure.4.1-2).
Three types of calculations are used in the program:
1. лю – Transient process. In this type of calculation the program calculates own and mutual inductances of the windings by means of finite-element method, forms and solves equivalent circuit task by mesh-current method.    This type of calculation usually requires less time for solving the task but ignores non-linear properties of material of the magnetic system leg.
2. F – Transient process. In this type of calculation the program solves coupled task by the finite-element and mesh-current methods. The present type of calculation permits to consider non-linear properties of material of the magnetic system leg but it requires more time for solution.
3. Harmonic. The program solves linear quasistatic task by coupled finite-element method and mesh-current method.

Calculation results

Calculation results are given in a form of Tables (Fig.4.2) and graphs (Fig.4.3). Calculation results are currents and voltages on the scheme elements, decomposition of currents and voltages into harmonic components, relationships between harmonic components and time. During harmonic calculation the program calculates reactive and active resistances (impedances) of the windings.   
Calculation results can be saved in Microsoft Office Word, Microsoft Office Word Excel, Adobe Reader (*.pdf).

The program permits to superimpose graphs, to scale graphs for convenient comparison, to measure different parameters of graphs using various tools (Fig. 4.4). Besides the program permits to decompose any part of signal into harmonic components (Fig. 4.5), to create relationships between separately selected harmonic components and time and to plot a master graph with any number of harmonics (Fig. 4.6, 4.7).
