PC Micromagnetic Simulator User's Manual Download Page

The User's Manual contains of the following chapters

1. Introduction

2. Getting Started

This chapter describes the system requirements for the software, the installation of the software and a design example to acquaint the user with the workings of the software. The example illustrates the interaction of elements having different geometric and magnetic properties, the specification of motion, electrical circuits and the recording of simulation animation. It is highly recommended that the new user go through every step of the design example before proceeding further.

3. System Design

The logical design components implemented in the software are described in this chapter. Also described are the specification of system geometry and the functionalities of all user-interface controls of the software. This chapter serves as a complete reference of the interface features of the software

4. Detailed Description of Model and Calculations

This chapter describes the electrical circuit implementation of the software and gives a detailed account of the physical model that represents the electromagnetic calculation aspects of the software.

5. Design Examples

This chapter contains a brief description of some design examples included with the software.
