- Mapdl.senergy(opt='', antype='', **kwargs)¶
Determines the stored magnetic energy or co-energy.
APDL Command: SENERGY
Item to be calculated:
0 - Stored magnetic energy.
1 - Stored magnetic co-energy.
0 - Static or transient.
1 - Harmonic.
SENERGY invokes an ANSYS macro which calculates the stored magnetic energy or co-energy for all selected elements. (For a harmonic analysis, the macro calculates a time-averaged (rms) stored energy.) A summary table listing the energy by material number is produced. The energy density is also calculated and stored on a per-element basis in the element table [ETABLE] with the label MG_ENG (energy density) or MG_COENG (co-energy density). The macro erases all other items in the element table [ETABLE] and only retains the energy density or co-energy density. Use the PLETAB and PRETAB commands to plot and list the energy density. The macro is valid for static and low-frequency magnetic field formulations. The macro will not calculate stored energy and co-energy for the following cases:
Orthotropic nonlinear permanent magnets.
Orthotropic nonlinear permeable materials.
Temperature dependent materials.
SENERGY is restricted to MKSA units.
Distributed ANSYS Restriction: This command is not supported in Distributed ANSYS.
