https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=154248&ref=Feed
In this worksheet, the physics of Silicon based P-N junction in thermal equilibrium is investigated. Special attention is devoted to the case where no bias voltage is applied to the junction. Poisson equation governing the electrostatic potential throughout the P-N junction is solved using two different approaches. According the first approach, the thin layer which extends on both sides of the junction is considered as depleted and Poisson equation is simplified and solved analytically. According to the second approach, a rigorous numerical resolution of Poisson equation is performed without resorting to any simplifying hypothesis. The worksheet presents a demonstration of Maple's capabilities in tackling the resolution of Poisson equation as a second order nonlinear nonhomogeneous ordinary differential equation and also in extracting, in addition to electrostatic potential, important physical quantities such as electrostatic field, negative and positive charge carriers densities, total charge as well as electric currents densities.<img src="/view.aspx?si=154248/PN_Junction.png" alt="Physics of Silicon Based P-N Junction" align="left"/>In this worksheet, the physics of Silicon based P-N junction in thermal equilibrium is investigated.

<p>In this paper an analytical model for predicting the open-circuit magnetic field distribution in the air gap of iron-cored internal rotor with radial magnetization of surface mounted magnet and a slotless stator is presented. The model is extended to the prediction of the armature reaction field, back-emf and instantaneous torque produced by the 3-phase stator windings with fractional or integer slot per pole and per phase of iron-cored internal rotor. Analytical model can be adapted also for any type of windings. The results are in closed forms and provide a basis for comparative studies between existing permanent magnet (PM) machines and searching for new PM machines topologies. Predicted armature reaction field distribution, back-emf and instantaneous torque can be validated by comparing with corresponding finite element calculations.</p><img src="/applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="Analytical Magnetic Field Modeling of Slotless Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors" align="left"/><p>In this paper an analytical model for predicting the open-circuit magnetic field distribution in the air gap of iron-cored internal rotor with radial magnetization of surface mounted magnet and a slotless stator is presented.

<p>In this contribution, we use Maple software to study a solar cell modeled by an electronic circuit containing five physical parameters. The physical parameters are: the series resistance, the reverse saturation current, the ideality factor, the shunt resistance and the photocurrent. First, we solve the characteristic equation giving the output current <br />
as a function of the output voltage of the solar cell. Then, we determine the analytical expressions of the short circuit current, the open circuit voltage, the dynamical resistance <br />
of the solar cell and the different kinds of powers involved : the output power, the power dissipated by Joule Effect in the internal components of the solar cell and the solar cell total power.</p>
<p>Next, we determine a new expression of the optimal load resistance corresponding to the maximal power point. Finally, we investigate the effects of the different physical parameters on the current-voltage characteristic I[out] = f(V[out]) and on the output power P[out](I[out]) of the solar cell.</p><img src="/applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="The Real Photovoltaic Solar Cell" align="left"/><p>In this contribution, we use Maple software to study a solar cell modeled by an electronic circuit containing five physical parameters.
