LabelBlockEC Object




Physical properties of a block for problems of AC (time-harmonic) conduction.


The LabelBlockEC object represents physical data applicable to the block label for AC (time-harmonic) conduction problems.

When you need to set or modify some physical parameters for the block label, you have to get the LabelBlockEC object using the Content property of the Label object, modify the LabelBlockEC object using its properties and then put it back in the Label object assigning your LabelBlockEC to the Content property of your Label object.

The LabelBlockEC object inherits methods and properties from its base class LabelBlock. In addition, it provides properties and methods specific for time-harmonic magnetics. Those are:


Kxx (Absolute)

Get and set the components of electric permittivity.
If the optional parameter is False or omitted, the value is considered as a relative permittivity, otherwise as an absolute value.
Absolute values of electric permittivity are measured in (F/m).

Kxx (Absolute)


The Loading property is not applicable to LabelBlockEC object.


The LoadingPhase property is not applicable to LabelBlockEC object.


Gets and sets the electric conductivity for the label in (S). Conductivity should be positive or zero.
In case of anisotropic media ConductivityXX and ConductivityYY could be different from each other.

You always have to set both Kxx and Kyy properties even for isotropic materials. If the Polar property is set to True, the Kxx component is considered as a radial and Kyy - as tangential component of the permeability tensor.

The same is true for conductivity (ConductivityXX, ConductivityYY properties).


Please note that with time-harmonic problems you always specify amplitude (peak) values for all alternating quantities.
