Computation of Structural Vibrations excited by Electromagnetic Forces
The electromagnetic forces computed by MagNet can be transferred by the FSIMapper to structural analyses. For transient MagNet results additionally a Fourier transformation can be applied in order to generate the loading for structural vibration analyses. In this way the engineer is able to investigate the resulting vibrations and noise emissions. Also partial MagNet models (with even or odd periodicity) are supported to be mapped on full structural models. The functionality is presented using some examples.
Toyota 2010 Prius traction motor analysis using MotorSolve
The engineers at NTRT at OakRidge National Labs have carefully tested the 2010 Prius and completely reverse engineered the power train system and taken extensive test data.. The content of this presentation outlines the results of a complete analysis of the 2010 Prius traction machine using MotorSolve and compares the results with the test data from the NTRT report. The complete machine performance results from MOTORSOLVE including a thermal analysis and efficiency plot comparison are presented.
Design and Optimization of Electric Motors for the Automotive Industry
I will discuss a number of engineering projects using the MotorSolve, MagNet and OptiNet software as part of the Automotive Partnership Canada (APC) project between McGill University, Infolytica Corporation, TM4 Inc. and Linamar Canada. Description of projects will include electric motor design, development of state-of-the-art optimization algorithms for multi-objective optimization and loss model development for accurate estimation of losses in electromagnetic devices.
3D analysis of induction melting furnaces with a cold crucible
The furnace crucible is made of water cooled copper. The use of water cooled crucible, instead of the traditional ceramic one, sharply reduces contamination of the molting load. Furnaces with the cold crucible are now broadly used for melting super-pure metals and alloys.
