Simcenter Motorsolve

Simcenter Motorsolve™ is the design and analysis software for permanent magnet, induction, synchronous, electronically and brush-commutated machines. Motor and generator designers can use this template-based software for quick and easy virtual prototyping.

Simcenter Motorsolve simulates machine performance using equivalent circuit calculations and our unique automated finite element analysis engine. Typical FEA operations, such as mesh refinements and post-processing, are not required as Simcenter Motorsolve handles these for the user.

The template-based interface is easy to use and flexible enough to handle practically any motor topology. Custom rotors and stators can be imported via DXF file format.

Simcenter Motorsolve Features
  • Automatically calculates list of all balanced windings
  • Auto-size: Get an initial value for several parameters related to the size of the machine based on torque per unit volume or rated current density
  • DXF Import of the rotor, stator, and armature geometry
  • VHDL-AMS and Simulink© export capabilities
  • Create multiple design alternates in the same model to do quick and easy performance comparisons
  • Pre-defined library of linear, nonlinear and anisotropic materials
  • Several winding diagrams available (Phase Back-EM. Winding factors, Görges diagram, Animated Airgap MMF, etc.)
  • Dedicated electrical machine environment which allows a designer to explore the solution space
  • Fully coupled drive-electromagnetic mechanical-thermal simulations
  • Explore the parameter space for a solution and automatically produce a report on the results.
  • Shorten time to market of a new design as well as lowering the overall costs of the design
  • Take notes, document design changes and export results into your spreadsheet
