Hi everyone,

I need to model a crank sensor with a flying wheel in Maxwell. Crank sensor is made of permenant magnet, pole piece (to concentrate the magnetic field), and coil. There is a space between the target wheel and the crank the sensor. What I have to do is to simulate the output signal from the coil while the flying wheel is spinning at certain speed and at a certain distance away from the sensor.

I am a new user of Maxwell. Up to now I know I could kindly simulate the wheel spinning by rotate certain angle. But still, I do not know how to simulate The Target Wheel's SPEED IN MAXWELL. Also, for this situation, how to put the excitation? As far as I understand, the magnetic source comes from the permenant magnet, because there is a relative motion between the wheel and the sensor, the coil has inducted current. Am I right? I select the winding and the coil terminal as the source. Am I right?

Thanks A LOT if anyone can help me.

Also, if someone have any tutorials about MAXWELL, please let me know. Up to now, I learn this software simply from the default examples and the online help. I have some experience in HFSS though.

Thanks,
Cheyenne
