FE-Therm now available
11 April 2013
Motor Design Limited has announced the launch of a new module: FE-Therm.
The feature was first piloted free for six months in order to gain useful feedback and develop its capabilities in line with customer requirements. However, the feedback was so positive that MDL decided to extend the free trial period for a further three months.
Now, with the enhancements firmly in place, the new tool is available for purchase.
Motor-CAD uses powerful analytical methods to calculate the performance of electric machines and cooling systems.
The new FE-Therm add-on module provides increased detail on conduction heat transfer in various components. It can be used to analyse conduction heat transfer for complex geometries such as multi-layer interior magnet motor rotors.
FE-Therm can be used to calibrate analytical lumped circuit models, thus improving accuracy. It is fully automated and takes only a few seconds to calculate.

The features in the FE-Therm module allow for a full 3D model of the machine to be generated.
