In this talk, we discuss how JMAG software is being run at the UW-Madison campus in a High Throughput Computing (HTC) environment powered by the open source Condor software. By coupling JMAG with Condor, we were able to improve optimization turnaround by an order of magnitude. We present HTC principles and an introduction to Condor, as well as an overview of the UW Center for High Throughput Computing (CHTC), which serves, among others the Wisconsin Electric Machines and Power Electronics Consortium. For more than two decades the CHTC has been serving the computational needs of a broad range of research and production domains, including scientists and engineers from a wide spectrum of disciplines ranging from semi-conductor test harnesses to turbine blades and electrical machines. We conclude with direction for future joint work.
