We describe a project-based assignment in the EE4375 master course held at the TU Delft. The assignment asks to perform finite element simulations of the magnetic and thermal field of power transformer in distribution grids. Students can choose to employ both codes developed earlier in the course or to resort to existing finite element packages. See . The assignment is developed in collaboration with the local system administrator.


The operation of electrical distrubution grids is changing drastically. The infeed of renewables and the loading by battery charging is causing unforeseen challenges. The finite element modeling of electrical power transformer is indispensable to chart the location of electromagnetic losses. This talk illustrates tools in Julia that render this challenge possible.
