What’s New in Simcenter Product Offerings
The new improvements to Simcenter SPEED, Simcenter Motorsolve, and Simcenter MAGNET will help users to model the complexity; go faster; stay integrated and more.
May 5, 2022
New updates to the Simcenter electromagnetics (EMAG) solutions accelerate the ability to model complex problems with minimal time and effort. These updates integrate the Simcenter EMAG solutions together so that the speed benefits of the 2D solutions can optimize the process of a user that needs physics in a complete FE solver.
The improved DXF overlay in Simcenter SPEED allows you to automatically see updates to your parameters. With a few clicks and no DXF reloads, users can create a facsimile of their motor from a template.
The new Step-Skew option for rotor or stator topologies in Simcenter Motorsolve more accurately models the possible manufacturing processes for skew. This new skew method simulates a more accurate “cogging torque.”
Start your software and build a new motor design in notably less time, according to Siemens. Creating a new motor is said to be 37% faster due to Simcenter Motorsolve’s response time updates.
The new preview mode for the FEA calibration in Simcenter SPEED allows users to view the model and make adjustments before submitting the job to the solver.
Eddy currents can induce a breaking effect that can be desired and undesired. It can be essential to model the impact of eddy currents, now possible in Simcenter MAGNET.
It is now possible to complete an EMAG data exchange for computational fluid dynamic (CFD) thermal studies with the improved data file exchange. To achieve this integrate, Siemens made across the EMAG software family including but not limited to:
Temperature-dependent data exchange for materials is now available in Simcenter SPEED. This update provides key new functionality for integrating Simcenter SPEED and Simcenter STAR-CCM+. For the best FEA results, appropriate temperatures and temperature-dependent material properties for each component of the motor are essential, and STAR-CCM+ can help determine those. Additional coil-side phase winding descriptions have been added to Simcenter SPEED, allowing you to define more detail in your simulation and provide parameters for a Simcenter STAR-CCM+ simulation.
Updates that improve a motor’s portability into Simcenter Star-CCM+ are not limited to Simcenter SPEED. The new end winding exports now available in Simcenter Motorsolve make it possible to export Simcenter Motorsolve motors to Simcenter STAR-CCM+.
