Multiphysics Simulation by Design for Electrical Machines, Power Electronics and Drives
December 2017, Wiley-IEEE Press
Presents applied theory and advanced simulation techniques for electric machines and drives
This book combines the knowledge of experts from both academia and the software industry to present theories of multiphysics simulation by design for electrical machines, power electronics, and drives. The comprehensive design approach described within supports new applications required by technologies sustaining high drive efficiency. The highlighted framework considers the electric machine at the heart of the entire electric drive. The book also emphasizes the simulation by design concepta concept that frames the entire highlighted design methodology, which is described and illustrated by various advanced simulation technologies.
Multiphysics Simulation by Design for Electrical Machines, Power Electronics and Drives begins with the basics of electrical machine design and manufacturing tolerances. It also discusses fundamental aspects of the state of the art design process and includes examples from industrial practice. It explains FEM-based analysis techniques for electrical machine designproviding details on how it can be employed in ANSYS Maxwell software. In addition, the book covers advanced magnetic material modeling capabilities employed in numerical computation; thermal analysis; automated optimization for electric machines; and power electronics and drive systems. This valuable resource:
- Delivers the multi-physics know-how based on practical electric machine design methodologies
- Provides an extensive overview of electric machine design optimization and its integration with power electronics and drives
- Incorporates case studies from industrial practice and research and development projects
Multiphysics Simulation by Design for Electrical Machines, Power Electronics and Drives is an incredibly helpful book for design engineers, application and system engineers, and technical professionals. It will also benefit graduate engineering students with a strong interest in electric machines and drives.
