Arc simulation
Ansys MHD module
Electric arc modelation

In this course you will learn the methodology for simulation of electric arcs through the software ANSYS-FLUENT. You will learn all the necessary steps for the activation, geometry, mesh, simulation and interpret the results. In addition to knowing about the theory of electric arc and ways of applying it in other models that involve electromagnetic phenomena.



This video introduces you to the course to learn the simulation methodology  of electric arcs through the software ANSYS-FLUENT, and the MHD module

1. What is the electric arc?

In this first video we will talk a little about what is an electric arc and its formation, taking as an example the case of arcs in Circuit-Breakers.

2. Electric arc physics

In this part we will know the multi-physics that governs the electric arc, current interruption methods and an introduction to the magneto-hydrodynamic theory.

3. Simulation model

In this part we will know the model used for simulations, geometry,  mesh and boundary conditions.

4. Module MHD and UDF´s

In this part we will know how to compile the UDF´s in FLUENT, and the equations for each property of the electric arc. Such ach (density, electrical conductivity). Also the coding of this UDF´s in C++.

Adding to this we will know the steps to activate the module MHD in ANSYS-FLUENT.

5. Methodology for simulation in ANSYS-FLUENT

In this part we will know the set up in MHD module and the exact steps for a simulation. This is the most important part of the course.

6. Obtaining and interpreting results

In this part we will know to interpret the results of the temperatures, voltages and currents obtained in the simulations and create some animations.

You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
