Motor-CAD V5 has incorporated the following new features to enhance the virtual prototyping experience of the machine designer.
-- New Geometry Capabilities -- Interior Permanent Magnet rotors [IPM] for the Brushless PM Motor [BPM] machine-type -- Slot-less Stator Winding Layout -- Housed BPM Outer Rotor -- BPM Outer Rotor Axle mounting
-- Sensitivity Analysis -- New, more versatile controls for setting up multi-parameter experimental runs -- Linked solving when considering perturbations within a given parameter value -- Improved graphing capabilities when reviewing the final range of solutions
-- Fluid Database -- New pull-down access to assign a desired fluid from among the fluids in the database -- Comprehensive interface for entering a fluid into the database -- Full capabilities for entering the variation of fluid properties as a function of temperature
-- Electromagnetic-Thermal Co-Simulation -- Automatic import of electromagnetic modeling data from the SPEED software -- Improved SPEED-Motor-CAD co-simulation and equilibrium determination
-- Command Line Interface -- Separate interface area for accessing the ActiveX parameter technology -- Write Visual Basic scripting programs to control Motor-CAD
-- Duty Cycle Editor -- Renovated Duty Cycle interface to enter the nature of the desired machine inputs -- Import/ Export of Duty Cycle data
"We know that the constraints on the electric machine designer today require them to consider more than just one discipline of physics as they try to develop an optimum design. Motor-CAD allows our customers to cleanly review the thermal behavior of their machines, and then to easily assess how the machine's response changes when various cooling methods are added to the base configuration. An optimum multi-physics design is now possible, and this should greatly impact the innovation of machines in the future," says Magsoft President Shep Salon.
