Advanced Simulation for Electric Machine Design
Tuesday, July 1, 2014

Electric machines are ubiquitous across our everyday life - from automotive to domestic appliances, aerospace to industrial usage - these machines are the workhorse of industry and modern amenities.
New regulatory efficiency requirements, fluctuating costs of permanent magnets, and the ever present goal of higher performance from a smaller package, increases pressure on both the design and optimization of electric machines across all applications.

This webcast explores the many techniques used to predict electric machine performance, including analytic models, lumped parameter models based on parameter definition from finite element analysis and nonlinear time-domain finite element analysis. Presenters show how you can better understand and accurately simulate the coupled effects of heat transfer and electromagnetic performance inside an electric machine to deliver machines that perform on the cutting edge.

This webcast explains how to rapidly link traditionally separated domains, and presents the benefits of these techniques through user examples. Electric machine design using SPEED™ and STAR-CCM+® is featured, with a note to the electromagnetic codes FLUX and JMAG for loss calculation.  

This presentation appeals directly to electric machine designers and thermal analysts as well as engineering managers and decision makers wanting to understand what is possible with class leading simulation tools.
