MotorSolve 6: Powering BMW i3 Design and Simulations

Automotive manufacturers are always looking for ways to increase efficiency in the design process and reduce their product’s time-to-market. This webinar introduces Infolytica’s MotorSolve 6.0 and its quick and easy virtual prototyping abilities.

Attendees will come away with an understanding of MotorSolve 6.0’s new 2017 features for motor and generator analysis for both hybrid & electric vehicles. Of special importance is DC bus power generation, including battery charging through energy recovery during braking. The presentation uses BMW’s traction motor-generator-used to power the unique 2012 carbon-composite i3 electric vehicle-as a practical example.

Presented by: Jim Hendershot,



MotorSolve 6 Adds Generator Analysis

Infolytica announces that MotorSolve v6, the company’s electromagnetic design software for electrical machines, is now available for download by supported users and evaluators.

MotorSolve v6 has a number of significant new features, including a new BLDC Generator mode analysis, Phasor diagrams, plus several new winding diagrams.

In this webinar, we offer a preview.

  • Discover the generator analysis functions of MotorSolve 6.0
  • Learn about additional design and display tools for motor analysis
  • Review an example of generator analysis using MotorSolve 6.0



Simulate Power Transformers using MagNet 2D/3D

In this free webinar watch how using MagNet’s non-linear surface impedance and perfect electric insulator modeling are extremely useful when designing medium to large power transformers. Using these features significantly reduces the mesh size, hence the solution time, without sacrificing accurate results.

Introduction to MagNet for SolidWorks

MagNet for SolidWorks is the new electromagnetic field simulator embedded in the industry leading CAD software. A combination beyond compare: just one design environment for drawing the model and analysing the performance of any EM device such as power transformers, sensors, MRI, actuators, solenoids and much more.

Learn more about our latest software in this free introductory webinar. MagNet for SolidWorks will be demonstrated by one of our technical software specialists followed by a Q&A session.  

In this Webinar:

    • Overview of all the features
    • Comprehensive design and analysis example
    • Easy coil setup which automatically determines current flow in connected components (link to Video here)
    • State-of-the-Art post-processing

Simulating power transmission lines with ElecNet

To completely understand the complexities of the electric field produced by and surrounding a power transmission line, the insulator and tower requires accurate simulation software.

In this webinar, we will tackle this problem with ElecNet 2D/3D which uses the finite element method to solve for the electric field strength, forces, capacitances and other quantities.

Three examples will be covered during this webinar:

  • Insulating structure for a transmission line
  • Insulating structure installed on a transmission line with 3 phases
  • Lightning striking a surge arrester

The evaluation of the electric field stress will be evaluated in various areas in order to modify the design, if necessary, to reduce corona discharge.

Portions of the data and problem definitions are taken from EPRI's Summary of E-field Result for IEEE Model Insulator & IEEE TF on E-field modeling of Composite Insulators reports.

In this Webinar:

    • Using ElecNet’s non-linear transient analysis for simulating a lightning strike
    • Comparing ElecNet’s results with measured results and data from EPRI

Date: 4th March 2014


Designing Electric Actuators

Actuators vary significantly in design, dimension and usage. Electric actuators continue to replace traditional pneumatic devices due to cost and application flexibility.

Designing an electric actuator requires accurate electromagnetic field simulation software. In this webinar, we will explore the designs of several typical actuator devices using MagNet v7 3D.

Pivoting, linear and rotating type actuators will be demonstrated.

Some of the performance metrics that will be examined include temperature, velocity & acceleration of components in motion, and resulting forces or torques.

In this Webinar:

    • MagNet's easy parameterization in detailed 3D models
    • MagNet’s time-transient response capabilities
    • The benefits of coupled electromagnetic-thermal analysis

Understanding the cooling requirements for a high performance electric traction motor

To effectively design a motor, you need to understand the effects of heating and using some form of cooling - it is a critical consideration for most.

In order to demonstrate the accuracy and intuitiveness of MotorSolve, a case study using the 2010 Prius Motor will be presented, including spray cooling, with comparison with measured data from an ORNL report.

In this Webinar:

    • An overview of all supported cooling types & features of MotorSolve
    • How two-way coupling of electromagnetic and thermal simulations work in MotorSolve
    • MotorSolve's thermal field plot and other critical performance results
    • Comparing MotorSolve performance results with measured data from an ORNL report on the 2010 Prius Motor
