## Electric Motors Quiz

So you think you know about electric machines?  Yeah, but how much do you REALLY know? Take this short quiz and find out! Feel free to share your results!

## From Mesh to Simulation & System Performances Computation

The dimensioning phase remains an essential step in the design of the electromagnetic device. This step can be reached with many approaches: > Analytical method > Numerical method: among these methods is the finite element method (FEM). The principle of …

## Optimum and Robust Simulation

How to find directly optimum and robust simulation solution? Usually geometric parameter values are taken in a range with tolerances. For instance the parameter HEIGHT measures 10 mm +/- 0.5 mm. These tolerances are mainly due to the precision of …

## Steady State AC Magnetic Coupled with Transient Thermal

Learn how to cook an Easter egg in a pan with an inductive stove! Heat generation is often a consequence of current flow in a device, and designers often have to take the phenomenon into account. The complex nature of …

## 2015 Altair FEKO® Student Competition

Electrical engineering students from across the globe are once again encouraged to compete in the popular 2015 FEKO Student Competition.  Open to all undergraduate and post-graduate students working on faculty-supervised projects in the area of electromagnetic engineering, the competition is an …

## Magnetic Signature of Eccentricities Faults

As with humans, the eccentricity can be a serious default for electrical rotating machines. Indeed it can degrade its performances, causes other defects and make it more audible (noise and vibration). This is why it is important to diagnose it …

## Does the Temperature of a Magnet Affect its Strength?

Magnets are everywhere in everyday lives! Hard drives, speakers or motors use magnets. But does the temperature of a magnet affect its strength? Let’s take as example a motor of a Prius (1200 …
