Optimizing Electric Motor Performance with CFD
Design and optimization of high-performance electric machines (e.g., motors and generators) require a multistage process to account for three major performance metrics: electromagnetic, structural/acoustic, and thermal. Traditionally, designs were based on a single physics and were conducted by separate engineering groups. Now, by using a multiphysics and system platform, you can consider all critical design goals simultaneously without compromising solution accuracy.
