Read our white paper on ‘Accounting for AC Winding Losses in the Electric Machine Design Process’

In this white paper, we compare the advantages and disadvantages of different approaches to modelling AC losses during the design process—including analytical calculations and finite element analysis (FEA)—and discuss a ‘hybrid’ approach to calculating frequency-dependent winding losses that combines the speed of analytical methods with the accuracy of FEA. Using the Motor-CAD EMag module, we analyse the AC losses of three electric machine types using the Full FEA and Hybrid FEA methods and compare the speed and accuracy of both approaches.
