Online Training Courses

Learn Motor-CAD and the multiphysics design of electric motors

Course dates: July 27 – 31, and August 3 – 7, 2020

Register for our free online training course for a fast-track introduction to IM and BPM machine design using Motor-CAD software. This self-learning course uses short video tutorials and training materials to guide participants through the modelling and design of three motor types: BPM machines, inverter-fed IM and direct online IM—along with new additional content for switched reluctance machines, synchronous reluctance machines, synchronous wound field generators and single phase induction machines.

  • Free evaluation of Motor-CAD over the length of the course.
  • Access to a series of video tutorials for different motor types and applications.
  • Live daily Q&A with expert electric machine designers.

 

What will you learn?

Work through bite-sized video tutorials for different motor types and applications, and learn how to calculate the electromagnetic, thermal and mechanical behaviour of your designs. At the end of the course, participants will be able to competently drive Motor-CAD and start to experiment with their own designs and design variations. Attendees will have access to all four course modules, covering the modelling and design of BPM machines, inverter-fed IM, direct online IM and other machine types.

How does the course work?

We use the online training platform, Thinkific, to run our online courses. A few days before the course is due to begin you will receive an email from Thinkific giving you access to your account and to our training portal.

How does the Q&A work?

The Question & Answer sessions will be run using ‘GoToWebinar’. Participants will be able to type their questions into the chat function and our motor design experts will do their best to respond, with live software demonstrations where possible, during the session. Once you have gained access to the training portal, you will be able to register to take part in the Q&A sessions.

The Q&A sessions will take place from 10:00am – 11:00am ET each day (15:00pm – 16:00pm BST).
