QuickField Analysis for Electric machines design

Electrical machine design and analysis is important part of QuickField applications. Many industrial companies rely on QuickField in designing of electric motors, generators, transformers, and other similar devices. Leading universities use QuickField as a teaching tool for educating electric machine designers.

Electrical machine design and analysis requires mostly electromagnetic simulations. However, in more detailed studies multiphysical simulations with combined thermal and structural analysis are often required.

During this webinar you will see how to effectively apply various types of QuickField simulations for electrical machines.
