Motor CAD Software

About Motor-CAD

Motor-CAD is a unique software package dedicated to the electromagnetic performance of motors and generators and the optimisation of their cooling. Developed in 1998, Motor-CAD is used by major motor manufacturers and universities worldwide.

Motor-CAD provides the ability to quickly and easily perform electromagnetic and thermal performance tests on electric machine designs, using an integrated systems of software packages: EMag, Therm and LabAccurate electromagnetic and thermal calculations can be done in minutes. The results are presented in an easy to understand format and allows design decisions to be taken efficiently.

The software has a carefully constructed user interface that makes for easy data input and interpretation of results. Many of the features that make Motor-CAD the perfect optimisation tool have been developed in close consultation with customers to meet the needs of the industry.

EMag: Offers a fast 2D finite element module for accurate electromagnetic and electrical performance predictions.

   

Therm: Combines a lumped circuit and finite element thermal calculation for optimising the cooling system of a machine.

   

Lab: Provides efficiency mapping and duty cycle / drive cycle transient outputs within minutes.

   

Motor-CAD also provides 3D views of the motor design.
