Optimize Connectivity and Operational Costs
Network Connectivity: Equipment connectivity and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is essential to today’s rolling stock, and can be optimized with Altair Feko™ and Altair Flux™. Feko® is widely for the design and placement of antennas and modeling wave propagation for network simulation. Flux can evaluate the magnetic field radiated by power cables and busbars, and the effect of external fields on the operation of sensors or actuators. Feko can also simulate both the radiation and irradiation of cables, antennas, and devices to inform the design of effective shielding.
Electric Drivetrains: Altair FluxMotor™ is dedicated to the simulation-driven design of electric rotating machines. It enables users to build from standard or customized parts, add windings and change materials to quickly develop a concept design. Flux models even the most complex electromechanical systems with proven accuracy. It provides multiphysics capabilities – magneto static, steady-state and transient conditions, along with electrical and thermal properties – to optimize machine performance, efficiency, dimensions, cost, and weight.
Reduce Downtime and Extend Useful Life: Asset management with the Internet of Things (IoT) has given birth to "digital twins" of critical assets. Digital twins help organizations optimize product performance, gain visibility into the in-service life of a product, know when and where to perform predictive maintenance, and how to extend a product’s remaining useful life (RUL).
