Respected Experts,nI am trying to find the cooling inside the motor due to the rotation of the rotor, In a way to find the vortex inside the motor. So, my aim is to find the temperature of the stator as it exhibits 200Watts of heat. and my next aim is to find how the vortex of air inside the motor flows as the rotor rotates, that would give me some rough Idea of the internal design and cooling.nI searched in YouTube for solution, but it didn't work out well for me.nPlease suggest me a specific papers or tutorials to come up with a solution.nThanks in advance! n

Hello,nHave you watched the following videos on E-Motor modeling between Maxwell and Fluent?nArrayArrayThere is also another video from our Channel Partners - CADFEM UK and Ireland.nArrayThese videos should walk you through the set-up process. You should be able to learn how to model and use the system coupling to transfer data between Maxwell and Fluent. nIn addition to this, you can search online for any open literature on modeling thermal management of Electric Motor in Fluent. Please use the following keywords to search thermal management electric motor cooling fluent.nThank you.nKarthiknn

Respected Sir,nThank you very much and sorry for the late reply.nIt was a very useful videos and your keyword reference also worked well.nI could possibly do up to some extent.nI hope I have got an idea of proceeding. But still, I face a problem.nThe shaft has to rotate in a Z axis. So I gave (0,0,1) in the frame motion, yet the shaft is lifting up in Y-axis (that is the problem) and the origin of rotation is (0,0,0) (i.e, I positioned at the centre) .nSo what is the problem here?nAlso If I Tick ON the ENERGY at the model and specify the source terms, I get the energy residual diverging beyond 1E+4 and the within few iterations, I get FLOATING POINT ERROR.nPlease, kindly, get me a perfect solution, in this aspect.nKeenly waiting for your answer and especially from Mr Karthick (Thank you personally).nnThank you experts!n
