MatMagnetics (class)

Method code available at https://github.com/Eomys/pyleecan/tree/master/pyleecan/Methods/Material/MatMagnetics

class MatMagnetics(mur_lin=1, Hc=0, Brm20=0, alpha_Br=0, Wlam=0, BH_curve=-1, LossData=-1, ModelBH=-1, is_BH_extrapolate=False, init_dict=None, init_str=None)[source]

Bases: pyleecan.Classes._frozen.FrozenClass

magnetic material properties

VERSION = 1
get_BH()

Return the B(H) curve of the material according to the Import object. If there is no B(H) curve linear data are computed from mur_lin.

Parameters

self (MatMagnetics) – a MatMagnetics object

Returns

BH – B(H) values (two colums matrix: H and B(H))

Return type

numpy.ndarray

plot_BH(fig=None, grid=True, color='r')

Plot the curve B(H) at the specified frequency

Parameters
  • self (MatMagnetics) – a MatMagnetics object

  • fig – if None, open a new fig and plot, else add to the gcf (Default value = None)

Returns

Return type

None

save(save_path='', is_folder=False)

Save the object to the save_path

Parameters
  • self – A pyleecan object

  • save_path (str) – path to the folder to save the object

  • is_folder (bool) – to split the object in different files: separate simulation machine and materials

copy(**kwargs)

Return a copy of the class

get_logger()

Get the object logger or its parent’s one

Parameters

obj – A pyleecan object

Returns

logger – Pyleecan object dedicated logger

Return type

logging.Logger

compare(other, name='self')[source]

Compare two objects and return list of differences

as_dict(**kwargs)[source]

Convert this object in a json serializable dict (can be use in __init__). Optional keyword input parameter is for internal use only and may prevent json serializability.
