A new Switched Reluctance Machine (SRM) electromagnetic module is now available in Motor Design Limited’s Motor-CAD, enabling the design and analysis of electronically commutated reluctance motors and generators. A magnet-less topology with great fault tolerant operation capability, switched reluctance machines can often meet requirements for aerospace and automotive applications. (Earlier post.)
Using machine characteristics generated by Motor-CAD’s FEA electromagnetic solver and a parameterized controller model, output data such as current and torque waveforms are produced quickly and easily, allowing fast design optimization.
Motor-CAD EMag modules are now available for the following motor types:
- Brushless Permanent Magnet motors (BPM)
- Induction motors (IM)
- Switched Reluctance motors (SRM)
- Synchronous Reluctance motors (SYNCREL)
- Synchronous machines (SYNC)
