2010 – 2011 TU München
Master of Science Electrical Engineering
2006 – 2009 DIT Deggendorf (Deggendorf Institute of technology), formerly known as FH Deggendorf (Fachhochschule Deggendorf)
Bachelor of Engineering Mechatronics
I’ve been using Flux® since 2010 when I attended a practical course called “Finite Elements in electromechanic actuators” which was part of my Master studies. This course and my future work with Flux® have been located at the institute of energy conversion technology led by Prof. Herzog at the TU München.
My first usage of Flux® was to analyze electrical machines.
During my Master thesis I used it to study the phenomena that occur in an electromagnetic displacement sensor.
Finite element analysis using Flux® was the key to understand the geometry, material and time dependent phenomena that interact in the electromagnetic displacement sensor which I studied in my master thesis. Based upon the gained insight I could describe a certain aspect of the device that improves its performance.
If my future colleagues will design and analyze electrical machines I would definitely recommend them Flux® as I know no other software with a similar feature set regarding electrical machines. If they do want to study electromagnetic phenomena in very specialized applications other than electrical machines I would recommend them to take a close look at competitive products with more flexibility in controlling the potential formulations and the order of the finite elements.
