Ansys Motor-CAD is a dedicated electric machine design tool for fast multiphysics simulation across the full torque-speed operating range. Motor-CAD enables design engineers to evaluate motor topologies and concepts across the full operating range, to produce designs that are optimized for performance, efficiency and size.

For deep analysis and validation of the motor design the Motor-CAD model can be transferred to Ansys Maxwell, Ansys Icepak and Ansys Fluent. Combining these solvers with Motor-CAD delivers high-fidelity, 2D/3D analysis capability enabling users to analyze end-effects, demagnetization, core loss, hysteresis and other advanced electromagnetic phenomena, calculate the thermal envelope for operation and design complete motor cooling systems.



Key Applications

Ansys Motor-CAD simulations can help engineers determine whether an interior permanent magnet (IPM), an induction magnet (IM), a switched reluctance magnet(SRM) or a wound field synchronous magnet (WFSM) is the best motor design
