Global computations
Definition
A global computation is a computation, at a given frequency, of a global physical quantity on one or several entities of conductor type, unidirectional or bidirectional.
The choice of the frequency is done by selecting a step from the solving scenario.
Physical quantities
Global computations can be done on:
 Joule losses in a unidirectional or bidirectional conductor
 Laplace force (average component as well as 2ω pulsating component) o n a unidirectional or bidirectional conductor
For the Joule losses the value for each conductor selected is calculated and displayed as well as the sum for all conductors selected.
For the average component of the Laplace force, the values taken by each of the three components (X, Y and Z) are calculated and displayed.
For the 2ω pulsating component of the Laplace force, the value taken by the real part and the imaginary part of each of the three components (X, Y and Z) are calculated and displayed.
Running a global computation
To run global computations the user has to:
