Highlights of the new version

This document gives the major information about Altair® FluxMotor® 2023. The main highlights of this new version are described below.

For more detailed information, please refer to the user help guides. The list of documents to read is presented below.

Here are the highlights of the new version:

  1. Improvement of the test Characterization / Model / Maps

    • Options have been added to compute and display maps with respect to the rotor position dependency
    • This improvement concerns Synchronous Machines with Permanent Magnets (SMPM) and Reluctance Synchronous Machine (RSM) as well.
  2. Export / System LUT (Activate or PSIM) has been updated for exporting data with respect to the rotor position dependency.
    • This improvement is available for Synchronous Machines with Permanent Magnets (SMPM)
  3. New test for induction machines with squirrel cage
    • Computation of the efficiency map with scalar control command. In this new test the control is based on the three main user input parameters: “The maximum Line-Line voltage, the maximum line current and the maximum speed.
  4. The distribution of computations is available

    The parametric distribution of the FluxMotor solver, “Flux”, is now possible on a single machine. Distributed computing allows the user to save computation time.

  5. The licensing process and dialog box have been modified to be the same as in Flux®
  6. The end-ring workspace, a GUI dedicated to user inputs - has been refactored for the induction machine design.

All the added new features are briefly described below followed by an update on issues and bugs.
