Whether designing an electric motor for an electric vehicle that needs to be small, efficient and quiet, or for an industrial application where size and sound are not of major concern, it is critical to simulate electric motors early in the design process. Ansys offers a complete workflow that progresses from design sizing options to detailed electromagnetics and thermal and mechanical analyses of the motor. Coupled electromagnetic-thermal-stress-and vibro-acoustics simulation of the motor using Ansys tools results in a high-fidelity, accurate and robust design that is optimized for performance, cost and efficiency.
