Simulation of Induction Machines with Ansys Motor-CAD

Advanced training - knowledge of Motor-CAD required


Training Advanced

In this training, you will learn how to use several approaches for the simulation of induction machines. This training is offered as a 1-day course.

1 day

Knowledge of Ansys Motor-CAD

Software used

  • Deepen theoretical knowledge of induction machines
  • Analytical and numerical modeling of the induction machine
  • Calculate and interpret operating points and characteristic diagrams
  • NVH simulation of induction machines


Induction machines are studied electromagnetically using various simulation approaches. In addition to an analytical approach, the numerical approach is also used to design this type of machine in practice. Both approaches are implemented in Motor-CAD.

In this training, you will learn the parameterization and the design of induction machines using both solution methods. You will also learn about the advantages and disadvantages of these simulation approaches and which approach is best suited for both time-efficient and accurate calculations for various scenarios. You will deepen your knowledge of the essential theoretical principles of induction machines. You will learn about the analytical model implemented in Ansys Motor-CAD and its limitations. You will also get to know the numerical 2D simulation with Motor-CAD for all problems that cannot be handled using the analytical model. Building on the single load point simulation, you will work on calculating torque-rpm diagrams. Finally, we present an NVH simulation of induction machines as an example of a multi-physical problem.

Previous knowledge of the simulation of synchronous machines with Motor-CAD is required for this training.

Do you have questions on the training?

When will I receive the final confirmation for my training booking?

Straight after you sign up, an automatic confirmation of receipt will be sent to the email addresses you provided. Once you have successfully verified the data you provided, you will receive your personalized sign-up confirmation, containing further information on course fees, the billing address, etc., by email within two to three working days.  

As soon as the minimum number of attendees has been reached, you will receive a final training confirmation containing further information. If you have booked an on-site training, we recommend that you wait until you have received this final confirmation before booking your travel and accommodation.

If the minimum number of attendees is not reached, we reserve the right to cancel the training seven days before it is due to start at the latest. We are happy to inform you on changing your booking to an alternative date. Please note that we accept no liability for hotel or travel bookings that attendees have already made.

When is the sign-up deadline for a training?

Training places will generally be allocated based on the order in which attendees sign up. For this reason, we always recommend booking for your desired date as early as possible.

As long as a coures still has free places, it can be booked.

At what time do the training courses begin and end?

Usually the training courses start at 9:00 am and end at 5:00 pm of the respective local time. The actual course times will be stated in the booking confirmation. Please note that, depending on the training host, there may be a possible time shift between your and the provider's local time. Therefore all local times are provided with the valid time shift to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
