Simulation Driven Innovation - Changing the Role of Simulation in the Design of Electrical Devices

The ability of a company to thrive in today’s economy depends on new and innovative products. Profitable enterprises require a constant stream of creative ideas moved into products to win new customers and satisfy existing customers’ needs. In the ideation phase, when the freedom to create and modify a design is at its peak and risk is low, creative use of computer-aided engineering can enable quantification of design performance based on the concept. This supplants subjective decision making and may lead to better product outcomes. Computational techniques become tools for requirements-based design creation rather than merely tools for performance assessment. Eventually, this will lead to a more efficient design process which will produce more innovative products.

In the age of electric vehicles and autonomous driving with sensors embedded in every product, multi-physics simulations and optimization that include electric devices, like motors and sensors is increasingly becoming a necessity. Computational electromagnetics have matured over the past three decades to become industry standard and hence reducing extensive testing. Simulations are also leading to significantly faster design iterations and therefore reducing development cost and improving design performance.

In this talk, Dr. Schramm will provide current state of the art multi-physics simulations that span over wide range of products. And will address simulation technologies that are helping improve measurement process in multiple disciplines.

Using Flux 2D and 3D for Accurate Computation of Load Losses in a Power Transformer

As a static electrical device, a transformer consumes electrical energy: the delivered power is lower than the received power, the transformers generates losses. For economic and environmental reasons, these losses are limited for each transformer and global trend is to reduce the maximum permissible losses. This paper describes how to use Flux 2D and Flux 3D in order to locate and to compute transformer’s load losses with better accuracy than existing analytical formulas, helping designers and saving materials.

Multiphysics Optimization to Design a More Electric World

The electrification of functions in transportation as well as the digitalization of power networks are bringing us in a new era for electric energy. It changes the way electricity is generated, stored, controlled and used, bringing plenty of smart capabilities for end users. For designers of electric machines and electrical equipment, it means innovative solutions, new technologies and topologies have to be found, with the aim of maximizing the energy efficiency of devices and systems, while offering new functions. To meet the many design challenges designers have to face, simulation tools are key to characterize and optimize energy transfer. Electromagnetic simulation is at the heart of what should be modelled, but other constraints like thermal, vibrations or structural have also to be considered. This presentation will show how a multiphysics approach used together with optimization techniques can help to innovate in the design of electrical devices.

3D Printing of Optimized Induction Coils out of High Conductive Copper

In inductive heating, electrically conductive materials are heated locally using a strong alternating magnetic field. The quality of the heating is defined by the geometry of the inductor, which generates the magnetic field. Conventionally, inductors are manufactured by bent and brazed copper semi-finished products, which limit the design freedom of the inductor geometry. Innovative additively manufactured inductor coils circumvent the restrictions of conventional produc¬tion. In combination with electromagnetic simulation of the heating process new innovative geometries can be developed. With these optimised induction coils higher efficiency and significant cycle time reductions can be achieved.
