Recently I've been working with the StatCurrentSolver and I've found that when you use "Current Control" (current fixed at Ic) the solver outputs the dissipated power as a function of the potential inposed on BC insead of power dissipated by Ic.
In my simulation (see results below) I've set Ic=10A but the "Total Heating Power" is referred to "Total Current" (2715A) which is a consequence of the BC set in the sif file. Of course, you can use the control scaling to obtain the righ amount of power but still, I would have though I would be getting a straight answer.
Code: Select all
Elmer solver output: StatCurrentSolve: Total Heating Power : 149.31834149734826 StatCurrentSolve: Effective Resistance : 2.0258730238131670E-005 StatCurrentSolve: Total Volume : 2.0165367700452461E-004 StatCurrentSolve: Total Current : 2714.8789363154228 StatCurrentSolve: Control Scaling : 3.6834054978421220E-003
Any help would be much appreciated,
