Simulation for Efficient Electric Motor Design and System Integration

As industrial equipment becomes more complex, leading industrial OEMs are finding ways to build more effective and trustworthy simulations. This can be especially helpful when modeling electric motors, which can be laborious and cumbersome.

In this webinar you will learn about the latest simulation techniques to predict electric motor performance by Leveraging 3D/2D finite element approaches to predict electric motor performance and get immediate feedback on a design’s performance. Leverage those models into system-level simulation so that proper motor sizing, overall energy efficiencies, control strategies, and control precision can be tested. Also, you can drive the models with intelligent design exploration methods and find better designs, faster.

Finite Element Simulation & System Simulation for Electric Motor Design

In this webinar, we will also discuss the benefits of using finite element simulation for electric motor design. In addition, we will present system simulation approaches that allow fast and accurate transient analysis for system-level performance. We will demonstrate the integration of an electric motor in the design of a delta robot, perform sizing studies, evaluate robot motion precision and related controls validation.
