The template based software solution for rapid electric machine design.
Era of Electrification...
In this current scenario Electrification is considered as a global hype solution against Global Warming. Industry players have to quickly embrace this pushed revolution nobody can ignore anymore to still be part of the game.
Siemens provides an end to end design solution starting from the initial sizing of the machine for the required application and till the final virtual prototype by considering all the physics involved in it.
SPEED is an all-in-one specialized tool for the sizing and preliminary design of electric machines such as motors, generators and alternators. SPEED includes all the necessary theoretical and physical models for a rapid e-machine design and optimisation with a flexible approach. The fastness of analytical method delivers almost instantaneous result makes SPEED a suitable solution for the initial sizing of the motor and to perform a preliminary designing on the model to arrive at few or the final model which will satisfy the requirement. The inbuilt template models support different types of motor models like Brushless DC motor, IM, SRM, wound rotor filed motor, axial flux motor etc
Once the preliminary design of the machine is done a need for Finite Element analysis is a must in order to closely replicate virtual prototyping which must include coupled thermal analysis in order to greatly save time and the cost of multiple prototypes. This can be done with Addon PC-FEA solver of SPEED, or linking with STAR CCM+ or by exporting the model to template-based FEA templated based solution Simcenter Motorsolve.
