Flexible Drawing Extension Released for MagneForce Simulators
Date: March 15, 2004

MagneForce Software Systems, Inc. releases a Flexible Drawing extension to allow each of its simulators to handle arbitrary machine geometries. Arbidraw is a package built into the AD level of each of MagneForce’s simulators, GenAC, BLDC, BCPM and Indu. Arbidraw allows a designer to modify an existing parameterized geometry module. The designer can start with a basic shape (slot module) from the library of parameterized designs and rotate copy to form either a portion or the entire machine cross-section. Once this is accomplished design features such as mounting ears, holes and the like can be added or modified as necessary. A designer can also begin a design completely from scratch from within Arbidraw. Upon drawing completion Arbidraw allows the designer to view and modify the finite element mesh as necessary. The Arbidraw geometry information is then read directly by the desired machine simulator and the analysis continues as normal.
MagneForce Software Systems specializes in producing simulation software for rotating electric machines using finite elements for magnetic field calculations together with various time based techniques for circuit simulations. This approach allows MagneForce to accurately compute all harmonics and non-linearities whether they be magnetic, spatial or time based.
