Last year, the company I work for — CFX Berlin (an ANSYS channel partner) — was selected as runner-up in the ANSYS Hall of Fame competition. The application we submitted was about designing motors with a coupled simulation approach, based on work we performed with a customer. When ANSYS asked us to participate in a webinar on this topic, we were happy to share what we learned.
The company we supported was Anhaltische Elektromotorenwerk Dessau GmbH (AEM Dessau), an electrical motor factory in Germany. The business is shifting from traditional development processes to true simulation-based product development for rotating electrical machines. The integrated electromagnetics and fluid dynamics (CFD) software from ANSYS makes it possible to perform real multiphysics calculations for these machines.
I’ll give you a little background on this project. AEM Dessau has more than 60 years of experience in producing rotating electrical machines. The company produces user-friendly, innovative and safe products that meet the highest standards of quality and reliability. It is not only a supplier but partners with their customers to help them compete in this market space.
