MotorXP-AFM beta testing

MotorXP - Electric Machine Design and Analysis Software

MotorXP-AFM

Design and Analysis of Axial Flux Machines with Permanent Magnets

We are starting beta testing our new software MotorXP-AFM for design and analysis of axial flux machines. You can request the beta version of MotorXP-AFM for FREE (please fill in the request form below). MotorXP-AFM (beta) will work for about three months until we release the final version of MotorXP-AFM.
You are encouraged to provide feedback about any problems with MotorXP-AFM (beta) in order to improve the final version of MotorXP-AFM. To send your feedback please contact us at info@motorxp.com or using Contact form.

MotorXP-AFM features summary

Prototyping

    • Stator-Rotor, Stator-Rotor-Stator (with yoke or yokeless rotor) and Rotor-Stator-Rotor (with yoke or yokeless stator) topologies
    • 3D stator and rotor geometry templates
Stator geometries: Parallel flat slot, Parallel round slot
Rotor geometries: Trapezoidal magnet, Rectangular magnet, Halbach array
    • Custom geometry templates
Create fully parameterized 3D geometry templates for custom stator and rotor geometries of arbitrary complexity
    • 3D geometry export into STEP file
    • Concentrated, distributed and toroidal winding types
    • Manual or automatic winding layout for all possible pole/slot combinations
    • Different wire sizing methods
AWG, SWG, wire diameter and slot or coil fill factor
    • Calculation of different winding parameters
Fundamental winding factor and harmonic winding factors, LCM and GCD of slot number and pole number, phase resistance and end turns inductance
    • Materials library and custom materials
    • Custom transistors and diodes
These can be added using data sheet parameters for inverter losses calculation

Analysis

  • High accuracy and high computational speed quasi-3D finite element modelling approach, around 50 times faster compared to full 3D FEA
  • FEA and analytical analysis methods including ultra-fast hybrid FEA-DQ method
  • Sinewave, PWM and six step drives are supported
  • All types of losses: winding losses, eddy current and hysteresis iron losses (including higher harmonics and minor hysteresis loops), magnet losses, etc.
  • Permanent magnet demagnetization analysis
  • Inverter losses calculation for IGBT and MOSFET transistors (including SiC MOSFETs)

Results

    • Time-series waveform plots and frequency spectrums
Current, voltage, back-EMF, torque, powers, losses, etc.
    • Air gap distribution waveform plots and frequency spectrums
Air gap flux density magnitude, air gap flux density tangential and normal components, radial force, etc.
    • Field plots and flux contours
Flux density distribution, current density distribution, loss distribution, etc.
    • Animated air gap distribution and field plots versus time
    • Machine constants
    • Flux density levels in different parts of the machine automatically calculated
    • Steady-state performance characteristics taking into account field weakening
Torque vs. speed, torque vs. advance angle, voltage vs. speed, etc.
    • Steady-state performance maps
Efficiency maps, losses maps, etc.
    • Extraction of the D-Q model parameters (such as Ld, Lq, magnet flux linkage)
These can be used in third-party applications, such as, FEM parameterized PMSM block of Simulink© Simscape
    • Id and Iq lookup tables extracted from the efficiency map data
These can be uploaded into controller for optimal motor performance
  • Plots exported into CSV and MAT files
