Electric field distribution along an insulator surface is of prime importance for the long term performance of insulators. In this paper electric field and potential distribution along a standard 33 kV polymeric insulator were investigated under different pollution conditions. Effect of voltage type and polarity on the electric field and potential distribution under contaminated conditions were ...

Charged particle accelerators require large dipole fields with stringent homogeneity requirements needed to bend particle beams without defocussing. Commonly superconducting saddle coil magnets are used with an iron core to enhance the bore field. The iron uneven magnetization brings undesired multipole fields that need to be compensated for by pre-conditioning the beam with additional magnets. ...

As interest in the electromagnetic spectrum expands towards the infrared and terahertz range, the distinct advantages of using semiconductors instead of metals for plasmonic applications must be understood. Plasmonic resonances in gold (Au) and indium nitride (InN) gratings are studied, in the terahertz (?=30µm) regime. The electromagnetic properties of Au and InN are described by the Drude ...

Railgun is an electrically-powered gun that accelerates a conductive projectile along magnetic metal rails. Various factors increase the projectile velocity. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages. While increasing the projectile velocity, one has to keep in mind the longevity of the rail guns for practical use . Railguns are often damaged after few uses due to the extreme working ...

Electrostatically excited plasma waves can induce a “plasma wind” in the surrounding media or air. The lifted object has a shape of a flying saucer, just for better illustration. A travelling plasma wave propulsion requires a pre-ionized media around the surface and a travelling electrostatic field. A simplified plasma model was used to set up an EFD (electro fluid dynamic) approach into a ...

Inductively Coupled Plasma Chemical Vapor Deposition (ICPCVD) has been widely used for carbon-based nanomaterial synthesis because it provides high plasma densities and uniform plasma distribution and allows plasma to be generated in room temperature. During the ICPCVD process, the plasma sheath and built-in electric field effectively impact the nanomaterial growth. Since plasma is a highly ...

引言：随着水平井和大斜度井的增多，随钻测井（LWD）技术越来越重要。随钻电磁波电阻率测井在随钻测井中应用最为广泛。在国外，随钻电磁波电阻率测井方法已经成为一种成熟的测井技术，但我国仍处于研究发展阶段。20世纪90年代，大庆成功地研制出2MHz电磁波电阻率测井仪器。本世纪，中油测井成功引进并研制出了随钻电磁波电阻率测井仪WPR。仪器仿真对国内引进该仪器进行生产以及实际测井资料处理解释具有指导意义。本文借助COMSOL Multiphysics®仿真平台，建立了二维轴对称模型。模型分为三层和多层，选择AC/DC模块中的磁场。通过LiveLink for MATLAB®实现脚本加载模型并控制数据按一定格式输出为文本文件。考查了APS公司的随钻电磁波电阻率仪器WPR仪器的探测特性，对比了仿真结果与APS公司商业宣传介绍的仪器特性。同时对比了COMSOL与同类有限元仿真软件的误差 ...

This paper describes the automatic optimization of an electromagnetic actuator using a genetic algorithm. The actuator modeled here is dedicated for charge changing valve actuation in internal combustion engines. In the first step of the simulation, several operating points are calculated using the script language of COMSOL Multiphysics. In order to reduce computation time, only one segment of ...
