Efficient Multidisciplinary Modeling of a Washing Machine Motor Duty Cycle
This presentation will take you step-by-step through the electromagnetic and thermal analysis of a washing machine during a full wash cycle.
By utilizing Flux and Activate, the designer was able to evaluate the thermal image of the motor, faster at a limited cost and in a limited time.
You will hear from the entire team responsible for the success of this project. From project start: outlining the goal of the project and establishing the workflow, to the evaluation of the motor performances, the computation of the losses for the different parts of the cycle, to project end: completing the thermal computation. You will observe the Activate 1D thermal simulation and the flow of data from Flux to Activate. You will get a rare 360-degree view of what was executed as actual measurements are compared to the results obtained using our elegant software solutions.
