Multi-physics Electric Motor Optimization for Noise Reduction

In an electric machine, the torque is generated by electromagnetic forces which also create some parasitic vibrations of the stator. These vibrations excite the mechanical structure on which the motor is fixed and generate sound. When designing the electric machine, this aspect has to be taken into account from the start since it depends on the harmonic content of the currents that feed the machine, on the shapes of the rotor and stator, and on the interaction of the electric frequencies with the natural mechanical modes of the structure. To simulate this phenomenon, a coupling between electromagnetic calculations and vibration analysis has to be set-up. Some optimization procedure can also be added in order to reduce the noise. In what follows, it is shown how Altair HyperWorks suite; specifically FluxTM, OptiStruct®, HyperMesh® and HyperStudy® products have been successfully used to perform a multi-physics optimization for noise reduction in a fuel pump permanent magnet motor.

Thermal Analysis of Electrical Equipment A review and comparison of different methods

Nowadays, it is more and more difficult to design electro-technique devices without having a look at thermal stress. In more and more applications (more electric vehicles, more electric aircrafts, …) designers need to reduce weight, cost, increase efficiency, and keep the same security factor. One possibility is to increase current for the same device, needing to check how to draw away the heat. This is why the classical approximations need to be cross checked with complementary analysis. These new tools have to be rapid and accurate in order to run parametric and even optimization analysis. There is also a need for fast model in order to check robustness versus driving cycles. The goal in this article is to review rapidly the different methods available, depending on the accuracy required and the solving speed. The method includes equivalent thermal circuits, Finite elements methods and CFD analysis.
