I have been doing much research on the internet to see if there was a FEM simulator that natively implemented the Jiles-Artherton model whether it be commercial or open source
So far, my conclusion is that there is none. Before I make a final verdict though, I would like to check with the community that this statement is correct. Is there any software package that natively implements the Jiles-Artherton model?
I am looking into this because I am working on finding a focal point to my PhD thesis research and I was thinking about creating a simulator for non-linear magnetic simulations. It would include a number of different features such as SPICE simulation that couples with the FEA simulation and parallel computing (both SPICE and FEA simulation). This would also include implementing a Jiles-Artherton model natively into the software.
I am though concerned that my project is not too much on the researchy side of things and worried this may not be funded since alot of the commercial software packages implement what I would like to do. So, I would also like to ask the community for some feedback, if possible, on the current research topic. Everything is still in an incubation since I start in the coming spring semester. I am asking this because both my professor and I are relatively new to the field.
