Maxwell: Total Loss in Induction Motor and Fluent Coupling
My question has two parts. I am trying to simulate the losses in an induction motor in Maxwell 2D transient simulation.
1. I am getting the core loss and the ohmic losses. But when I calculate the total loss using the calculator, it is always zero. I am attaching the file below. Can anyone suggest where I am doing it wrong?
2. I further need to couple this with Fluent to get the temperature distribution. Can I generate a 3D model in Maxwell from Rmxprt and save the model as a CAD file and import it to Fluent and run the simulation? My Maxwell simulation will be 2D transient while the Fluent one will be 3D steady state. Will this work?
Also, I would really appreciate if you can let me know of any good tutorials or a step-by-step guide for the same.
I am pretty new to both induction motors and Ansys.
