As simulation technology and computing power become more advanced, it will be possible for Industry 4.0 engineers and analysts to implement a spectrum of electromagnetic scenarios for all types of digital twins, from connected cars and appliances to the automated factory where they are produced.
Covering applications across various engineering fields, electromagnetic simulation is not a one-size-fits-all task. It is a complex exercise that involves design teams, analysts and testing experts who require different types of cut-for-purpose simulation and design tools. Throughout this paper, we will highlight some of the current electromagnetic solutions and toolsets that are part of the Simcenter portfolio, focusing on several cases in the aerospace and automotive industry.
To start, we will cover the basics, including low- and high-frequency approaches to solve electromagnetic problems in Industry 4.0 applications. Then we will highlight some of today’s innovative electromagnetics.
