“Characterization – Model – Motor – Scalar” Illustration 
The results of this test give an overview of the electromagnetic behavior of the machine considering its topology. For a set of LineLine voltages (U) and a set of power supply frequencies (f), the general parameters of the machine like, mechanical torque, currents, power factor and power balance are computed and displayed as curves.
This gives the capability to make comparisons between the results obtained from the measurements and those with the Altair® FluxMotor®.
In this test, system engineers will find a characterization tool adapted to their needs and able to provide accurate curves ready to be used in system simulation software like, Activate or PSIM. Indeed, from results obtained in this test, a scalar drive and control can be applied.
