Nowadays, it is more and more challenging to design an e-motor. Many constraints have to be fulfilled, including maximizing power using minimal size, considering thermal constraints, material and production costs, and of course reducing weight. In order to meet these constraints, a multifaceted solution is needed, leveraging physics tools in combination with optimization methods.
This webinar will introduce Altair's e-motor design and optimization solutions in a step by step process. We will discuss pre-design, magnetic computation and thermal analysis and show how optimization methods can help to optimize weight and cost at each step of the process (especially the weight of magnets) . We’ll demonstrate how Design Of Experiments (DOEs) allows designers to run different types of optimization very quickly, which enables informed decisions at different stage of the design cycle.
