Adjustment of time step: examples


The 3D case of the example below presents the modelling of a trident contactor produced by Schneider Electric. The Magnetic Transient application is used.


The results are presented in the graphs below.

The current variation during the displacement of the upper part of the contactor is presented in graph 1. The constriction and the relaxation of the time step are shown in graphs 2 and 3.
