Motor Design Ltd (MDL) offer a wide range of consultancy services dedicated to electric machinery design for industrial companies operating in various application fields.
Our consultancy services are led by Dr Mircea Popescu, who during his almost 30 years in the engineering profession, brought original contributions to the analysis, optimal design theory as well as to the engineering development of high efficiency electric machines.
There are many ways in which MDL can help.
- We provide complete original designs for electric motors and generators. The predicted electromagnetic and thermal performance of the new designs is presented in comprehensive and detailed reports. The analysis of the newly designed machines is based on our expertise together with a highly specialised software suite that includes: Motor-CAD, SPEED and Portunus.
- We optimise your existing electric machines designs and provide expert advice on how best to meet the specifications, such as size, weight considerations, energy efficiency or cost.
- We investigate thermal problems in your existing electric machines design. Our expert knowledge of the cooling of electric machines, together with our cutting-edge thermal analysis tools, enable us to find solutions to a wide range of thermal problems.
- We also model complex electromagnetic and thermal problems that are outside the typical electric machines field, such as cable and bus bars, induction heating in metal pipes.
Our services are based on your requirements and the action plan is drawn up in close consultation with clients to ensure that the service meets your needs. Where necessary, we will call upon the expertise of our professional partners in research and industry to widen our skills base.
We have worked on various projects for a wide range of clients in many different industries. Our projects have included hybrid/electric vehicles, green aircrafts, wind power generation, submersible pumps, hermetic compressors, conveyer rollers and racing cars.
One thing all our customers have in common is the reassurance of knowing that their motor design issues will be dealt with by professionals who are skilled motor designers with extensive experience in this area of work.

Motor-CAD was used to optimise a motor design for aircraft undercarriage retraction system. This was an application with a very short duty operation and the need for minimum weight. Motor-CAD's transient calculation facilitated a new motor design with a 31% weight reduction.
