MotorSolve®


MotorSolve is the complete design and analysis software for induction, synchronous, electronically and brush-commutated machines.
Motor and generator designers can use this template-based software for quick and easy virtual prototyping. MotorSolve simulates machine performance using equivalent circuit and our unique automated finite element analysis engine. Typical FEA user controls such as mesh refinements are not required as MotorSolve performs these operations for the user. The template-based interface is easy to use and flexible enough to handle practically any motor topology. Custom rotors and stators can be imported via DXF.

MotorSolve BLDC supports AC generators or generating mode analysis. Any electrical machine in the BLDC module can be simulated in motor mode or generator mode, depending on the operating condition.
