Modern electric motors must be cooled heavily during operation to assure functionality and performance. Reduced development times and a strongly increasing focus on costs lead to the necessity to finally define the complete cooling system early in the development process. Up to now, a simulative approach led to unsatisfied results as a consequence of the geometrical complexity and an inefficient toolchain.
Usage of SIMERICS MP provides the possibility to investigate the complete cooling system based on CFD simulation very early in the process. Furthermore, a systematic optimisation can be performed before purchasing test samples first time, which increases efficiency and reduces costs.
With SIMERICS MP, the complete motor is being simulated three-dimensional transiently. For this purpose, a coupled simulation of a multiphase volume of fluid approach and a conjugated heat transfer between fluid and solid is taken into consideration.
Increase your efficiency and speed-up your time-to-market by implementing SIMERICs MP in your development process!
