      How to speed up the induction motor simulation in maxwell?

      Hi, to fast reach steady state of induction motor/generator, linking could be used between eddy current solver to transient solver​. The long time transient effect of eddy current in rotor bars can be passed by using eddy current solver​. To link two solvers, the key point is that magnetic field of eddy current model should be same with the first step field results of transient model​. Keep same initial position of rotor, geometry and materials​. Same current direction and value​ Adaptive frequency is slip frequency in eddy current model.

      Hi Peter8415,

      Below are the ways you can speed up your simulation.

      1. If your model has symmetry you can reduce the model to possible symmetry.
      2. use a coarse mesh to reduce the number of mesh elements. This may reduce the accuracy of the results.
      3. Having a more powerful PC.
      4. Having an HPC license to distribute ANSYS batch jobs and run in parallel across many compute cores.
