Case Studies

Simulation software offers a number of benefits, all of which help limit the need for the construction of actual prototypes. This is achieved by enabling companies to design via computer simulations thereby reducing costs and risks associated with physical prototyping.
Our success stories examine how INTEGRATED’s software dramatically decreases costs and eliminates some of the real-world challenges which companies face when designing devices, components and systems.

NASA Goddard’s Cryogenics branch benefits from new engineering software

NASA satellites and spacecraft require fairly advanced temperature control which ensures that the electronic components and highly sensitive instruments work properly. Every piece of equipment has a temperature range in which it works properly. The equipment may be damaged if it gets too far outside its operating temperature range. Much of NASA’s equipment (both in space and on the ground) is designed to work at room temperature...

Electric field calculations are essential for high voltage insulators

Occurrence of water droplets due to environmental conditions on outdoor high voltage (HV) insulators can lead to localized field enhancement, causing partial discharges and dry arcs which can ultimately result in complete flashover. The reason for this study was to explore the effect of contact angle of water droplets on electrical stress intensification and its implications...
