The electromagnetic design of electric machines, such as synchronous and asynchronous machines, are among the core competencies of the Electric Drive Systems Department. Both analytical and numerical methods of calculation are used for the dimensioning of the electric machine regarding the optimal use of the assembly space. The ANSYS Maxwell simulation software is available for 2D and 3D simulations. Thus, detailed calculations can be performed for complex relationships, such as:
- Nonlinearities through saturation effects
- Current displacements in the conductors
- Eddy current losses in conductive areas
- Torque ripple due to parasitic harmonic waves
The characteristic diagrams for optimal efficiency, which are subsequently generated based on the simulation results considering all mechanisms of loss, provide initial estimates on energy consumptions for real load profiles and/or normal cycles.
