Modeling Electric Motors in COMSOL Multiphysics® - Archived
Electric motors play an important role in a potentially fossil-free transport sector. The design of such machines requires a multiphysics approach to improve aspects like thermal management for magnets and coils, power density, efficiency, reliability, and cost.
In this webinar, we will present the capabilities of COMSOL Multiphysics® for electric motor design, addressing electromagnetics, vibrations, and thermal management and stress by coupling electromagnetics with heat transfer and solid mechanics. The optimization of a permanent magnet motor with respect to the shapes and positions of the magnets will also be discussed.
We will demonstrate how to model electric motors to compute various parameters like torque as well as core and copper losses.
