Heat generation is often a consequence of current flow in a device, and designers often have to take the phenomenon into account. The complex nature of this operating principle requires a multiphysics approach when it comes to modeling. The application of steady state AC magnetic coupled with transient thermal used in Flux® software allows users to perform this type of modeling. Two kinds of resolution are coupled to determine the resulting magnetic operating point: steady state AC magnetic resolution and transient thermal resolution. Thermal analysis has always been a key capability of Flux®.  To illustrate the operating principle of the origin of the heat source we consider a pan of water we want to boil in order to cook.
