Advanced E-Motor Technology 2020, 10th – 13th February 2020

Dr James Goss, CEO of Motor Design Ltd, will be co-presenting at this conference alongside Dr Alex Michaelides, the Senior Manager and Tech. Specialist for eMachines and Controls at Jaguar Land Rover.

Wednesday 12th February  I 16:20  I  Optimisation Methods in Electric Drive Design 
This presentation demonstrates a revolutionary electric machine design and optimisation approach that enables full multi-objective pareto based optimisation. Each design candidate is fully evaluated against the design specification including electromagnetic, thermal and mechanical constraints. A case study is shown for a P2 permanent magnet machine for a PHEV application, the machine is optimised for maximum drive cycle efficiency, minimum size and minimum cost.

Presented by: Dr. Alex Michaelides (Senior Manager and Tech. Specialist eMachines and Controls, Jaguar Land Rover) and Dr. James Goss (Chief Executive Officer, Motor Design Ltd).

Designing an E-Machine: An electromagnetic problem?

Designing an E-Machine: An electromagnetic problem?

WEBINAR 1/3  I  WINTER WEBINAR SERIES  2019

 

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 watch?

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

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

WEBINAR 2/3  WINTER WEBINAR SERIES  I  2019

 

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 watch?

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