Industry-Leading E-motor Acoustic Simulation
Experience the Difference
Ansys Solutions for acoustics provide a complete multiphysics workflow for e-motor noise, vibration and harshness (NVH), as well as active sound design for electric vehicles, enhancing driver and passenger safety and comfort.
Electric vehicle (EV) and autonomous vehicle (AV) manufacturers create signature sounds for their cars (including engine noise) to enhance vehicle appeal and give listeners a feel for the speed and acceleration. Using cutting-edge sound enhancement techniques, automakers are introducing new, customized sounds for their vehicles. These techniques augment natural vehicle sounds by playing synthesized sounds synchronized with the vehicle's real-time data over the vehicle's speakers. Ansys delivers in-vehicle sound design and tuning that is designed to predict, test and validate the future soundscape of vehicles in real-world driving conditions, to ensure that EVs provide the optimal sound experience.
Simulating the noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) of an electric motor is important for proper electromagnetic (EM) and vibro-acoustic design of electric vehicles (EVs). Ansys’ solutions can characterize the NVH effects of an electric motor early and accurately in the design cycle to improve vehicle performance and safety. These solutions lower development costs and help support electric mobility (e-mobility) — an application resulting from electrifying transportation. Ansys' solutions enable EV carmakers or other e-motor integrators to optimize the sound perception and performance, improve customer satisfaction and gain competitive advantage in the transportation and industrial sectors.

An electromagnetic field simulation solver for electric machines and electromechanical devices. Solve static, frequency-domain and time-varying electric fields.
Solve broad structural analysis needs with a suite of finite element analysis (FEA) solutions that provides in-depth analysis of structural and coupled-field behaviors.
By coupling multiphysics simulation with acoustic testing results, predict and fine-tune product acoustics at an early stage while making improvements along the way.
Whether it's reducing vibrations in a household product or an electric vehicle, acoustic simulation improves the sound of our world. Sounds can be a product benefit or an annoyance, creating a strong emotion and reinforcing a product's brand identify. This is especially true with EVs. Ansys tools enable automakers to design the perfect acoustic experience for their vehicles.
Whether you're 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.
This webinar will introduce you to ASDforEV, a tool that enables you to test and finely tune active sound design candidates for electric or quiet ICE vehicles, in real driving conditions. This tool covers a wide range of sound functions, organized into five axes: SAF – Speed Acceleration Feedback; AVAS – Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System; Ambiance; ADAS – Advanced Driver Assistance System; and HMI – Human Machine Interaction.
This webinar series focuses on design and analysis of electric machines, and presents many of the technology capabilities offered by Ansys simulation tools including full-length presentations as well as short demonstrations. With many workflows available, users may start with concept design using Ansys Motor-CAD, then proceed to detailed magnetics analysis with Ansys Maxwell. Multiphysics problems may be further studied with Ansys CFD for advanced cooling and Ansys Mechanical for structural analysis as well as noise, vibration and harshness (NVH).
