ANSYS Maxwell Automation and Customization - Application Brief

This application brief depicts an efficiency map computation and compares it with measurements for a permanent magnet synchronous machine, including the complete torque-speed operating region. The validated simulation model led to an investigation of reducing the permanent magnet size, which enabled reducing the magnet size by 20 percent. The impact of this on efficiency and machine performance was quantified, and design changes were simulated that maintained the desired efficiency over the operating range.
