Motor-CAD Software

Electromagnetic, thermal and mechanical analysis across the full torque-speed operating range.

Motor-CAD enables design engineers to evaluate motor topologies and concepts across the full operating range, to produce designs that are optimised for performance, efficiency and size. Motor-CAD software’s four integrated modules—EMag, Therm, Lab and Mech—allow multiphysics calculations to be performed quickly and iteratively, so users can get from concept to final design in less time.

"[Motor-CAD] is a very nice tool, meaning that it is very easy to parametrize, so I use it for optimization of electric machines mostly... It is a unique set of multiphysics tools; I think nothing else in the world can compare to that. So you can produce magnetics, thermal and mechanical modules to do whatever you need."

Branko Ban — Electric Machine Specialist at Volvo Trucks

"We mainly use Motor-CAD for preliminary design analysis. It gives us a quick overview or how to compare between designs, mostly for thermal analysis… Motor-CAD is a very powerful tool. It is really, really fast and accurate at the same time, and I think that it is a very user-friendly tool."

Sara Roggia PhD — Electrical Machine Specialist at Safran Tech

"Motor-CAD is my main tool for electric machine design—I use it most days. Obviously with turbochargers rotating so fast, one of our key interests is the AC losses and the eddy current losses of the rotor. So that is what I am particularly interested in, and I find that Motor-CAD is a good compromise between the speed of the solution and the accuracy of the solution."

Jeff Carter PhD — Senior Staff Engineer at BorgWarner Emissions, Thermal and TurboSystems
