Free Motor-CAD Workshop: University of Stuttgart, Germany


What is Motor-CAD and how can it help you with your electric motor designs? Join our free, hands-on Motor-CAD workshop to find out.

Motor Design Ltd will be running our next free Motor-CAD workshop at the University of Stuttgart in Germany.

  • Date: 2nd December 2019
  • Location: University of Stuttgart, Stuttgart, Germany.


What you will learn

This workshop will provide a hands-on introduction to Motor-CAD software. Participants will work through a modelling example for synchronous permanent magnet machine and learn how to calculate electromagnetic, thermal and mechanical behaviour, including generating outputs such as efficiency maps and perform analysis over duty cycles. All calculations will be performed live during the day, and at the end of the workshop participants will be able to competently drive Motor-CAD and start to experiment with their own designs and design variations.


Who should attend?

Engineers who wish to learn how to use Motor-CAD to design, analyse and optimise electric machines.

Joint Webinar: A complete design and analysis process for electric machines, using Motor-CAD and Romax Nexus products

This joint webinar between Romax Technology and MDL will show how Motor-CAD, Romax Evolve and Romax Concept fit together in an integrated process for early stage design of the electric machine and the drivetrain system.

The webinar will feature a presentation from MDL on the application of Motor-CAD for early stage traction motor analysis for an electric vehicle. Romax will then show how this initial design can be incorporated into structural and NVH analysis with Romax Evolve, and drivetrain layout design with Romax Concept.

Attendees will learn:

  • How Romax and Motor-CAD tools can be used together in an integrated workflow
  • How the interfaces work in practice at different stages of the development process
  • How it is possible to significantly speed-up the development of electric drive systems

Visit the Romax website to find out more and register.

Joint Webinar: Introducing ANSYS Motor-CAD

If you are interested in learning how Motor-CAD can be used in combination with ANSYS tools, don’t miss this joint webinar presented by Dr Marius Rosu (Lead Product Manager, ANSYS Inc) and Dr James Goss (CEO, Motor Design Ltd).

  • Webinar date: 7th November 2019, 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM (EST)

Dr. James Goss, CEO, Motor Design Ltd.
Goss received an MEng degree in systems engineering from the University of Warwick in 2009 and in 2014 received an Engineering Doctorate from the University of Bristol in the design of brushless permanent magnet machines for automotive traction. He is the CEO of Motor Design Ltd, where he mainly works on automotive R&D projects and software development with large industrial partners.

Dr. Marius Rosu. Lead Product Manager, ANSYS, Inc.
Rosu earned a Bachelor of Science degree in electrophysics from the University “Politehnica” of Bucharest, Romania, in 1994. In 1996, after earning a scholarship for an electromagnetic field computation research program at the Institute National Polytechnic of Grenoble in France, he earned a master’s degree in computer-aided design. In 2001, Rosu earned a Licentiate of Science Degree in Technology from Helsinki University of Technology in Finland. He then earned his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University “Politehnica” of Bucharest in 2003. Rosu serves as the lead product manager for the electromechanical product line at ANSYS.
