Multiphysics solution for Electrical Machines at Design stage

Multiphysics solution for Electrical Machines at Design stage Now a day’s Electrical motor is the key component in the Autonomous World. We can find the Electrical motor in every application like Electric vehicles, Industries, Robotics, and renewable energy, etc,. Back in time, Electrical machine analysis was treated as a Single physics problem, But nowadays due to a lot of challenges, we treat the electrical machine as a Multiphysics problem. It has challenges in Electromagnetic, Mechanical, and Fluids as well. So, designing a highly efficient and cost-effective Electrical motor is challenging. However, the traditions to develop the motor has not yet completely changed. Most of the Motor R & D teams are depending on the standard methodology and Machine design Experts. This leads to consume a lot of time and thereby optimization of the Electrical machine will become much more complex. To overcome these challenges, Integrated Multiphysics simulation technology makes it possible to optimize Electrical machine design performance in a fraction of the time and cost required by traditional design methodology. It is “a true Multiphysics problem,” which requires precise attribute balancing across all the physics platforms. These interconnected attributes increase dependency across all departments, with the ultimate goal of “efficient and robust E Machine development.” Ansys Motor Solution at Design Phase: Ansys motor technology has a complete comprehensive solution from the initial design of the motor to high-end Multiphysics solutions. Apart from the high-end 3D simulations, Ansys can also address the Multiphysics platform in the Motor design stage. Ansys Motor-CAD is a Multiphysics simulation solution for Electrical rotating machines at the design stage. Which can offer the simulations to full torque-speed operating range. Ansys Motor-CAD quickly evaluates different machine topologies and produces the Optimized size, performance, and robust machine. To address the Multiphysics challenges, Ansys Motor-CAD has four modules. Electromagnetics (EMAG) Thermal (Therm) Mechanical (Mech) Virtual Laboratory (LAB) Nowadays the product development life cycle has reduced due to the competition. So, to meet the deadlines, motor designers should quickly validate their design data and need to make a quick design decision, and with certainty that they will not face problems down the line. The template-based solution and standard workflow will allow enough time for Motor-CAD users to explore multiple design variations and completely assess the complex Multiphysics challenges like the impact of advanced loss effect in the initial design stage. Electromagnetic Analysis (EMAG) Thermal Analysis (Therm) Virtual Laboratory (LAB) Mechanical Analysis (Mech) Electromagnetic Analysis (EMAG): Ansys Motor-CAD EMAG module is a combination of basic Finite element (FEA) analysis and analytical algorithms for quick analysis of the Electromagnetic behavior of the designs. It is 2D template-based & can accept customized .dxf* files as well. It will optimize the Motor designs easily with an extensive range of parametric-based platforms.Thermal Analysis (Therm): Ansys Motor-CAD Therm module has an industry-standard tool with 20+ years of experience in Motor thermal analysis. The thermal module has an extensive range of templates and it is working on 3D lumped circuit analysis to give a quick response within seconds. The complete geometry model will be treated as a thermal circuit with heat sources, resistances, and Capacitances. Motor-CAD therm will address both Steady-state and Transient thermal including the different types of cooling effects like forced convection, natural convection, etc.Virtual Laboratory (LAB): Ansys Motor-CAD LAB module is an equivalent extracted the saturated model from the EMAG module. The lab module enables the engineer to rapid and accurate prediction of Electrical motor design and performance for an extensive range of operating points. This Saturation model with different operating points helps the engineer to give a quick response for Efficiency maps and Torque speed curves within minutes. This model will carry out different duty cycle analyses within seconds.Mechanical Analysis (Mech): Ansys Motor-CAD Mech module works on Finite element analysis (FEA). This is a template-based geometry and will accept a .dxf* file as well. Mechanical module analyses the stress and displacement on the rotor front under high operating speeds.
