Design and optimization of high-performance electric machines (e.g., motors and generators) require a multistage process to account for three major performance metrics: electromagnetic, structural/acoustic and thermal. As electric machines become smaller, lighter and more powerful to support a variety of applications, thermal management becomes essential as high temperatures can reduce the part life and efficiency of these machines.
In this webinar, we focus on thermal management solutions that enable faster, more reliable and more efficient electric machine designs to ensure motor protection and performance. Topics include:
- Thermal model creation using CFD for a water-cooled electric motor
- One-way and two-way coupling between electromagnetic and CFD solvers
- Tips and tricks for modeling oil-spray cooling of electric motors
- Creation of a thermal reduced-order model (ROM) for system modeling
