Modeling an Electric Motor in COMSOL Multiphysics®

Duration: 12:08

Engineers working in electromagnetics and electric motor design need to be able to accurately predict how their devices will perform in real-world operating scenarios. The COMSOL Multiphysics® simulation software and the AC/DC Module can be used to model electric motor designs.

Watch this video to learn how to model an electric motor in COMSOL Multiphysics®. We begin with a general overview of the COMSOL product suite. Then, we demonstrate step by step how to set up a model of a permanent magnet synchronous motor to calculate the magnetic flux density, as well as the torque and cogging vs. peak loading.
