Introduction to
Ansys Motor-CAD

Course Overview

This course provides an introduction to designing electric motors using Ansys Motor-CAD. This self-learning course uses short video tutorials and training materials to guide participants through the modelling and design of three motor types: BPM machines, inverter-fed IM and direct online IM—along with additional content for switched reluctance machines, synchronous reluctance machines, synchronous wound field generators and single-phase induction machines.

Prerequisites

  • Basic knowledge of electric machines.
  • An active Motor-CAD license is required to take part in this course.

Target Audience

Motor Designers

Teaching Method

This self-paced course uses short video tutorials and training materials to guide participants through the modelling and design of different motor types using Motor-CAD software.

Learning Outcome

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Learn how to calculate the electromagnetic, thermal, and mechanical behavior of eMachine designs using Motor-CAD.
  • Learn how to calculate efficiency maps, torque/speed characteristics and analyze drive cycle performance using Motor-CAD.  
  • Learn to competently drive Motor-CAD and start to experiment with your own designs and design variations.
  • Attendees will have access to all four course modules, covering the modelling and design of BPM machines, inverter-fed IM, direct online IM, and other machine types.
