Performance Assessment of Electric Motors Using High Fidelity

Assessing the performance of electric machines in variable speed drives is an integral part of their development process. Performance mapping and drive cycle simulation allow engineers to predict the electric drive’s performance at different operating conditions and design their products accordingly. Using a combination of finite element analyses, interpolation methods, and post-processing calculations, Ansys Motor-CAD allows electric motor and electric drive designers to find the best solution for their application. Furthermore, coupling Motor-CAD’s performance mapping and driving/load cycle capabilities to Ansys Maxwell’s high-fidelity FEA modeling allows users to perform these analyses with increased physics fidelity and unleash the full potential of a simulation-driven product development process.
