Flux-AcuSolve coupling allows to make thermal analysis in AcuSolve by taking the losses computed in Flux (Joule losses or Iron losses) as heat sources.

This specific document gives the optimal workflow to follow in Flux and AcuSolve to make the thermal analysis of a cable.

Concerning the software version to use: from Flux2018.1 (mandatory) and from AcuSolve 2017.2 (advised).

Study case

In this document we consider a cable as study case.

Joule losses generated in the cable involve temperature increase which can destroy the materials.

The Flux-AcuSolve coupling allows predicting and evaluating the temperature increase.


The following synoptic illustrates the different steps described in this workflow document:
