Motor Design Limited (MDL) has released v13 of its Motor-CAD software. 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.
There are more than 25 new or enhanced features in this latest release, including:
Up to 150% faster calculations.
Multi-physics system level simulation.
Faster force analysis and powerful visualisation of the electromagnetic forces and modal shapes.
Ability to export animations to GIF files.
ANSYS Maxwell 3D export option so that users can export models from Motor-CAD to ANSYS Maxwell in seconds.
Close-coupled transient solution that enables users to carry out multi-physics drive cycle analysis with coupled electromagnetic, thermal and control models.
New hairpin winding templates and more.
