ANSYS Electromechanical Software for Simulation Driven Product Development

As the pace for development of new electromagnetic and electromechanical devices quickens, designers are facing immense pressure to produce smaller, less expensive, and more reliable and efficient components. All of this must happen in a condensed timeframe.

Industry leaders recognize that virtual prototyping of electromagnetic devices must play a major role in overcoming these market challenges, and CAE Associates is pleased to be partnered with ANSYS to provide the most trusted electromagnetic solution in the industry.

ANSYS Maxwell and related electromagnetics tools deliver cutting edge functionality — depth, breadth, a plethora of advanced capabilities and integrated multiphysics — providing confidence that your simulation results reflect real-world outcomes.


ANSYS Maxwell quickly and accurately simulates electromagnetic fields in a variety of industrial components including electric motors, solenoids, power supplies, transformers, and sensors. Capabilities include 3-D/2-D magnetic transient, AC electromagnetic, magnetostatic, electrostatic, DC conduction and electric transient. Use Maxwell to accurately solve for field parameters including force, torque, capacitance, inductance, resistance and impedance.

Maxwell is seamlessly integrated into the ANSYS Workbench project schematic, enabling Multiphysics analyses with drag-and-drop simplicity. Powerful Electromagnetic, Mechanical and CFD coupled simulations can be easily implemented.

ANSYS Maxwell’s automated solution process requires you specify only geometry, material properties and the desired output. From this point, Maxwell automatically generates an appropriate, efficient and accurate mesh for solving the problem. This proven automatic adaptive meshing process removes complexity from the analysis process and allows you to benefit from a highly efficient, easy-to-use design flow.
