Transformer Technology Symposium


Host ProSIM R&D Pvt. Ltd.
Dates Tuesday, August 9 – Wednesday, August 10, 2016
Venue World Trade Center (Bangalore, India)

We will hold a JMAG seminar focused on transformers at the Transformer Technology Symposium, an event to be hosted by ProSIM, a JMAG Group member based in India. We will introduce JMAG’s latest features through use cases to evaluate phenomena such as iron loss and stray loss in the core, and insulation durability.
Please come if you have an interest in transformer analyses.

Event Report

We held a JMAG seminar focused on transformers and motor design at the Transformer Technology Symposium in Bangalore, a famous industrial city in India.

At the transformer session, over 15 seminars were given by local electrical equipment manufacturers and universities. Special attention was paid to efficiency and safety design for the development of large transformers, and these subjects were presented on from the perspective of both implementation and research. About 50 participants gathered, and many of them were novices to simulation, so additional time was giving to demonstrate JMAG at our presentation, allowing the participants to get a feel for simulation technologies. This allowed us to continue having productive discussions with the participants after the presentation.

At the motor session being concurrently held, about 20 local motor design experts attended, many of which already had experience with JMAG. We were able to have detailed discussions as we listened to each of them discuss their on-site challenges and interests in simulation.

Many questions were asked enthusiastically during the seminars; the friendly vibe of the symposium allowed audience members to join in the discussions. Instead of simply reading a presentation off of a paper, a more play-it-by-ear approach was required, and this animated atmosphere allowed for a fulfilling two days. The transformer session concluded with the participants joining together for “Let’s make a GVA (giga VA) class transformer!”; we wanted to offer JMAG to aid in the advancement of India’s technology.
