Analyzing Electric Motor and Generator Designs
Application ID: 97091
This is a primer model of a permanent magnet machine. It is a generic model that can be modified to simulate a motor or generator. It demonstrates different capabilities of COMSOL Multiphysics® to examine aspects of machine design, such as air gap magnetomotive force (MMF), torque computation, and iron losses. The model files demonstrate different analyses and compare different geometries that are built with geometry parts.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
