Rotating machine components: about

Rotating machine components

Rotating machine components, squirrel cage and brush-segment can be created:

  • within the electric circuit editor context (graphically visualized component)
  • with circuit import (graphically visualized component according to the format)
  • directly in Flux (graphically non visualized component)

Graphic representation

In the circuit editor, the components are represented by the following graphic symbols:

Squirrel cage Brush-segment

Imported components are displayed in the window of the electric circuit diagram.

Components created directly in Flux are not displayable.


The orientation of these components affects the finite elements method computation.
