Learn how ANSYS Maxwell can be used as part of a multiphysics simulation protocol to reduce noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) caused by wind, powertrain and road noise in moving vehicles.
Watch this webinar to learn about the new capabilities available in Ansys Maxwell in our latest release, Ansys 2020 R1. It includes powerful new features for the design and analysis of electric motors, actuators, transformers and electromechanical devices:
Advancements in harmonic force coupling
Enhanced demagnetization calculation and visualization
Litz wire modeling
Many more features and enhancements
ANSYS teamed with INTEL to benchmark a new ANSYS Maxwell technology that delivers dramatic speed improvement for transient electromagnetic field simulations. Simulations that previously required weeks of computation time are now completed in a matter of hours. The key software technology is a new algorithm within Maxwell that allows engineers to solve time steps simultaneously as opposed to sequentially.
Simulation has long been used to improve the design of nearly every physical product or process by providing the opportunity to evaluate a wide range of alternative designs prior to building physical prototypes. Simulation has also long been used to model different operating scenarios to develop control strategies that are incorporated into control algorithms to improve operations. The emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) has created the potential
for a transformational journey in which a simulation model of the product or process is tied through the Internet to sensors capturing data and to actuators controlling its operation. The result is a so-called digital twin of the physical product or process that can be used to analyze and diagnose its operation and optimize its performance and maintenance in real time. By using simulation in conjunction with the IoT, companies can analyze the performance of
products in real-world operating conditions and make confident predictions about future performance to improve product operation and productivity, and to reduce the cost and risk of unplanned downtime.
Electrical motors and drives are present everywhere today. As their number increases, the produced noise becomes an important issue for maintaining healthy and comfortable working and living conditions. Manufacturers can assure themselves market leading positions if they can guarantee low noise emission levels in their product data sheets. Therefore, prediction of noise using numerical methods is an essential part in early design stages. Read this white paper to learn more.
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). This paper describes Ansys’ solutions to 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 carmakers to reduce the NVH of electric vehicles, improve customer satisfaction and gain competitive advantage in the automotive sector.
