Analysis of Electric Motors using Flux
Analysis of electric motors using Flux.
Flux is a finite element analysis tool for low frequency magnetic and electric fields. Flux also solves thermal flux patterns (non CFD). Rigid body motion is included in Flux (rotating, translating or pivoting motions). External circuit connections make Flux the tool for electromechanical design including the power supply.
Through this course, the participants will discover how to use Flux to perform different type of analysis on a selected interior permanent magnet motor.
- Online, Instructor led
- 5 days — each session being 2 hours from 1 – 3 PM (EST) or 10-12 am (EST)
- Presentation and hands-on exercises
This course will not cover the basics of using Flux and It is encouraged that the participant already has an experience on how to use Flux and a background about electric motors in general.
