2.1 ElecNet_Features

ElecNet은 유한 요소법을 사용하여 전계 강도, 힘, 커패시턴스 및 기타 양을 계산합니다. 각 모듈은 다양한 유형의 전기장을 시뮬레이트하도록 설계되었으며 2D 및 3D 설계를 위해 별도로 사용할 수 있습니다.

Electric Field Solvers
Transient or Time-varying electric fields
  - Simulates transient electric fields produced by transient voltages
  - Non-linear permittivity and conductivity
  - Accounts for displacement currents
  - Supports floating conductors
  - Electrical conduction and lossy dielectrics
  - Second-order time stepping
  - Resume Feature: pause at a particular time step for inspection

AC or Time Harmonic electric fields
  - Simulates electric fields produced by specified AC voltages
  - Analysis based on a single frequency using phasors (complex domain)
  - Accounts for displacement currents
  - Supports floating conductors
  - Electrical conduction and lossy dielectrics

Static fields
  - Simulates static electric fields produced by specified DC voltages and charge distributions
