Home page

Please refer to the user help guide “Windings” to get more detailed general user information about winding design.

The following picture illustrates the main areas of the home page which is displayed for the classical winding.

WINDING design area – Classical winding - Overview
1 Selection of the STATOR subset: WINDING panel (Click on the icon WINDING)
2 All the required user inputs to define the winding are available in the “WINDING” panel (right part).

Once a winding is defined, the corresponding results are automatically displayed in the form of a winding report. Visualization of the winding characteristics (inputs, settings, materials, etc) are possible.

Scrollbars allow browsing the whole document rapidly and giving an overview of all the results. Using scrollbars, complete data can be accessed and visualized.

4 Shortcuts for displaying the corresponding section of the winding report.

A section scrolling bar allows choosing the section in which user inputs are defined.

Scrolling selection bar where Winding architecture, Coil, Insulation, End-winding, X-Factor and Potting sections can be selected

6 Choice of the winding connection: Y (Wye) or Δ (Delta)
7 Four modes of winding allow to define and build the winding architecture .
Auto Automatic mode, used as default.
Easy Easy mode, to choose solution among those proposed.
Adv. Advanced mode, to allow the user to define any specific input parameters.
Expert Expert mode, to set the connection table.
8 User input parameter fields to enter the values according to the considered mode.

Selection of sections

A scrolling selection bar helps to choose the section in which one can define the winding settings.

The winding can be built step by step. One can access the different sections by clicking on the following buttons:

  • “Winding” to build the winding architecture
  • “Coil” to set how the coil is defined and to see how the slots are filled.
  • “Insulation” to define all the winding insulations
  • “End winding” to define the topology and dimensions of the end-windings
  • “X-Factor” to adjust phase resistance and end-winding inductance
  • “Potting” to define the topology and dimensions of the potting around the end-winding

Note: “Potting” section is available only when the housing is defined with a frame (circular or square shape).

Scrolling selection bar – Winding environment
1 Scrolling selection bar, where Winding, Coil, Insulation, End-winding, X-Factor and Potting sections can be selected
2 Section data can be reached thanks to shortcuts
3 Arrow symbol allows the user to scroll the bar to reach other sections (on the right or the left) when needed
4 The bar slides on the right to allow reaching Potting section
Note: This mode of section selection is applied for all type of windings: polyphase classical, three-phase classical and hairpin.
