MotorSolve from Infolytica powering BMW i3 design and simulations

Written by: Infolytica Ltd | Published:

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

Infolytica is the leading electromagnetic design software company since 1978, with tools allowing users to design basic, or highly complex electromechanical devices. One such design tool is MotorSolve, an easy to use yet flexible software for the complete design and analysis of induction, synchronous, electronically and brush-commutated machines, including BLDC Generators.

Motor designers can rapidly simulate and get motor performance characteristics using MotorSolve, the powerful software that offers their complete analysis needs in one design environment. The template-based interface combined with the variational geometry modelling makes the software easy to use yet flexible enough to handle virtually any motor design.

MotorSolve simulates machine performance using an automated finite element analysis engine. There is no need to construct the model, perform mesh refinements or extensive post-processing to extract motor related results - MotorSolve performs these operations for the user. In addition, the new generator analysis option includes analysis tools such as voltage regulation, operating point analysis, and power vs speed curves.

There are also general analysis programs, designed to obtain quantities not provided by the predefined analysis modes. Examples include motion analysis, reduced order model analysis, and D-Q analysis.

Automotive manufacturers are always looking for ways to increase efficiency in the design process and reduce their product’s time-to-market. The recent webinar explains how Infolytica’s MotorSolve 6.0 design software and its quick and easy virtual prototyping abilities can help. 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. www.infolytica.com/en/news/?page=webinars.
