Bi-directional Automatic Electromagnetic-Thermal Coupling for Motor Design Using Maxwell & ANSYS Mechanical

  • Electromagnetic and thermal designs are both important and highly coupled when designing a traction motor used in HEV/EV applications
    • Electromagnetic losses affect temperature and temperature change will in turn change the electromagnetic material properties
  •  Multiple iterations are needed in order to achieve high accuracy
    • Scripting is needed to automate the process
  • ANSYS provides both industry-leading electromagnetic and thermal solvers
  • ANSYS Workbench environment offers an integrated design environment for such multiphysics application
  • ANSYS' flexible scripting capability makes it possible to automate complex procedures
