Opera provides a complete suite for simulation and optimisation of electromagnetic and electromechanical devices. It consists of a geometric modelling system for creating design models (or importing from CAD), plus a choice of finite element solution modules:
● Low Frequency Electromagnetic Fields
● High Frequency Electromagnetic Fields
● Charged Particle analysis
● Thermal analysis
● Structural analysis
Following simulation, a programmeable interactive post-processor allows users to view and analyse the simulation, and perform further calculations. Subsequent improvement of designs is easy. Model geometry and property parameters can be changed to rapidly perform "what-if" investigations. Or, designs can be automatically impoved with the aid of Opera's Optimiser.
