Motor Design Ltd located in Wrexham, UK has significantly expanded its Motor-CAD version 11 E-Mag (Electro-Magnetic) motor design simulation program by adding a Switched Reluctance Machine (SRM) E-Mag module. This new module joins current BPM (Brushless Permanent Magnet) and Synchronous AC Motor (SYNC) and Induction (IM) E-Mag modules of the Motor-CAD v.11 simulation program.
The SRM E-Mag module enables the design and analysis of electronically commutated reluctance motors and generators using motor sizing and performance characteristics generated by Motor-CAD. The magnet-less SRM motor features superior environmental performance with respect to higher temperatures and high shock conditions.
The FEA electromagnetic solver and a parameterized controller model, output data such as current and power, and torque wave forms are produced quickly and easily, allowing fast design optimization processes.
The Motor-CAD design software enables motor designers to evaluate motor topologies and concepts, both electromagnetically and thermally, across the full operating range to produce designs that are optimised for performance, efficiency, size and cost.
