SPEED is an all-in-one specialized tool for the sizing and preliminary design of electric machines such as motors, generators and alternators

SPEED

In the past 25 years, millions of electric motors have been designed with SPEED, reducing cost and size as well as increasing their lifetime and reliability. SPEED is an all-in-one specialized tool for the sizing and preliminary design of electric machines such as motors, generators and alternators. Combined with STAR-CCM+, it offers design engineers a unique and powerful ability to model electromagnetic and flow/thermal capabilities in the same working process. This results in an end-to-end multiphysics solution for electric machine design and allows for thermal and stress management under a wide range of environmental conditions, leading to more affordable and better performing electric machines.

Why Simcenter SPEED?

SPEED is an all-in-one specialized tool for the sizing and preliminary design of electric machines such as motors, generators and alternators. Combined with STAR-CCM+, it offers design engineers a unique and powerful ability to model electromagnetic, flow/thermal, mechanical stress and vibro-acoustics capabilities in the same working process leading to more affordable and better performing electric machines.

SPEED key differentiating technologies & customer value:

  • All-in-one, user-friendly tool for characterizing most main classes of electric machines (e.g. electric motors, generators, alternators) and drives.
  • Performs fast and automatic electromagnetic analyses using analytical equations. Additionally, it provides links to 2D finite-element solvers, which improves accuracy significantly for a small additional running time.
  • Combines parameterized electronic drive models with the electric machine’s electromagnetic designs.
  • Facilitates problem analysis and electric machine characterization with a dedicated workflow.
  • Enables 3D flow/thermal analysis alongside the fundamental electromagnetic design with links to STAR-CCM+ to tackle temperature-critical and high power density designs.
  • Enables 3D mechanical stress analysis coupled with fundamental electromagnetic analysis through a link to STAR-CCM+ finite-element solver to feed back stress values to SPEED.
  • Facilitates calculation of vibro-acoustic noise via a smart workflow between SPEED, STAR-CCM+ and LMS Virtual.Lab Acoustics.
  • Links to third-party packages such as FLUX, J-MAG and Motor-CAD to provide more design flexibility.
  • Enables automated and intelligent design exploration with a built-in HEEDS MDO user interface for seamless electric machine design resulting in increased machine efficiency at a lower cost.
