Designing an E-Machine: An electromagnetic problem?

Designing an E-Machine: An electromagnetic problem?

WEBINAR  I  Wednesday 27th November  I  15:00 GMT

 

About this webinar

Although it is widely accepted that a combination of electromagnetic, electrical, thermal and mechanical analysis is required to create a competitive electric machine, the initial sizing and design optimisation of the motor is often viewed as a problem that can be solved by electromagnetic analysis alone. Even in modern design optimisation methodologies, multiphysics analysis is generally recommended as a validation stage towards the end of the process, when design candidates have already been selected, parameters have been defined and there is a high cost of change.

In this webinar we explore how carrying out multiphysics analysis at initial stages of the design process can impact design decisions and ultimately result in a more competitive design.

 

Topics covered include:

  • Why is multiphysics design and analysis in the initial design phase important?
  • A comparison of design decisions based on multiphysics or EM analysis alone.
  • Using multiphysics analysis for high speed design with field weakening.
 

Who should attend?

Design engineers and technical professionals working in the field of electric machine design.

Designing an E-Machine: Optimising electric machines with multiphysics analysis

WEBINAR  I  Wednesday 4th December  I  15:00 GMT

 

About this webinar

This webinar will show how Motor-CAD can be coupled with OptiSLang to provide a multi-physics, multi-objective optimisation procedure. An example is given where an electric vehicle motor is optimised to give maximum drive cycle efficiency, minimum cost and minimum size, while achieving a specified peak and continuous torque/speed requirement.

 

Topics covered include:

  • How to efficiently evaluate each design candidate against the full specification and objectives.
  • Leveraging state-of-the-art meta-model based optimisation methods for a groundbreaking workflow.
  • A data driven design approach resulting in rigorous design choices.
  • The ability to rapidly respond to changing requirements and evolving specifications.
 

Who should attend?

Design engineers and technical professionals working in the field of electric machine design.

Designing an E-Machine: Building your workflow

WEBINAR  I  Wednesday 11th December  I  15:00 GMT

 

About this webinar

This webinar shows how Motor-CAD can be seamlessly integrated into your workflow utilising links to other tools for system analysis and detailed physics-based modelling. Examples are shown on how to automatically export and set up a 3D finite element analysis solution from a Motor-CAD model, how to co-simulate with the Motor-CAD solver in a systems simulation environment and how to analyse combined motor and gearbox NVH behaviour.

 

Topics covered include:

  • How to work with 3D FEA and CFD tools alongside Motor-CAD in the design and development process.
  • How to integrate the motor models into vehicle, powertrain, cooling or electronics system models.
  • How to model detailed interactions between the motor and other components, such as the gearbox.
 

Who should attend?

Design engineers and technical professionals working in the field of electric machine design as well as mechanical and system engineers working with motor models.
