Abstract

This paper demonstrates a workflow for multi-physical simulation and design optimization of electrical machines using open-source tools. The workflow demonstrates applicability of open-source tools for all steps of complex 3D Finite Element Method modelling of an electrical machine - geometry production, meshing, pre-processing, solving (even in massively parallel environment), and post-processing with visualization. The example case is a permanent magnet synchronous machine with direct immersion oil cooling. First design simulation is demonstrated. The current-source driven electromagnetic simulation is used to estimate PM eddy-current losses and iron losses to evaluate the design.
