Optimization of IPM Motor Rotor Magnet topology

      Hello Ansys,
      I am working on design of IPM motors and I am trying to optimize my
      design epecially rotor magnets and flux barriers .
      I have some technical questions that how to flux barriers is customize
      on Motor-Cad. As you know, rotor magnet topology that available in
      Motor-Cad library have so many sharp corner. I need to parametrized
      the flux barier with smooth corner for the optimization.

      The only method is write a custom codes ? or is it possible to define
      new parameter for flux barrier on Motor-Cad ?

      Hello efed,

             MotorCAD could support imported .dxf CAD file for the simulation, but we would not parameterize it.

             Please use Maxwell for the optimization of the geometry.

      Many thanks for your answer. Is there any training documantation about hairpin winding design in Maxwell also custom design of IPM motors ?

      Thank You :)

      Hello efeb,

            A document on the hairpin winding is in C:\ANSYS_Motor-CAD\15_1_7\Tutorials\Ansys_Maxwell. It is much easier for you to use MotorCAD design the winding and export it to Maxwell.
