The ForceDensity object contains the PLT file results. It has following attributes which mostly correspond to the text sections in the file:

Attribute

Description

project

Name of model file

filename

Name of PLT file

date

calculation date

version

FEMAG version

nodes

number of nodes

elements

number of elements

quality

meshing quality

positions

Position properties

PositionsΒΆ

list of dictionaries for each position

position

rotor position

X

list of angles

FN

list of normal component of force

FT

list tangential component of force

Radius

list of radius

B_N

list normal component of flux density

B_T

list tangential component of flux density

Example:

fdens = ForceDensity()
fdens.read('example.PLT0')
pl.title('{}, Rotor Position {}'.format(
         fdens.title, fdens.positions[0]['position']))
pl.plot(fdens.positions[0]['X'], fdens.positions[0]['FT'])
