Development planning of JMAG

DAY1: Wednesday, December 12   9:40 - 10:40

Development planning of JMAG I
Dr. Takashi Yamada, JSOL Corp.
Our goal is to make JMAG the most powerful and smartest analysis tool.In order to achieve this, we have been proactively developing and introducing advanced simulation technologies. In addition to even faster solvers, robust mesh functions, detailed materials models, and multiphysics features, we will enhance post-processing functions such as optimization. By reinforcing the foundation of these leading simulation technologies, we will continuously evolve JMAG-Designer as a general-purpose analysis tool. At the same time, development of user-friendly tools for a wide range of users, such as JMAG-Express for motor design and the multi-purpose JMAG-VTB, is also in progress. Furthermore, enhancements of interfaces with third-party products are ongoing so that JMAG's applications can be expanded even more. Because of this, users will be able to easily conduct structural and fluid analyses with JMAG. We hope you will follow the progress of the continuously-evolving JMAG.

Keynote Speech
Loss analysis and shape optimization of rotating machines
Dr. Katsumi Yamazaki, Professor, Dept. of Electrical Electronics, and Computer Engineering, Chiba Institute of Technology
In recent years, the loss reduction and the efficiency improvement of rotating machines are strongly desired, whereas the output density becomes higher and higher. As a consequence, the necessity of electromagnetic field analyses increases for the design of rotating machines because the losses at each part of the machines, which cannot be separated only by measured results, can be obtained by the electromagnetic field analyses. Furthermore, owing to the progress of computers and numerical techniques, the loss reduction and the efficiency improvement of rotating machines have been achieved by coupling the electromagnetic field analysis with structure analyses and optimization methods.
From these viewpoints, in this presentation, the characteristics improvements of rotating machines on the basis of the loss investigation and the shape optimization by using the electromagnetic field analysis and mechanical stress analysis will be reported and discussed.

The Design of Superconducting Magnet using JMAG
Dr. Jun Yoshida, Technology Research Center, Engineering Physics Group, Sumitomo Heavy Industries, Ltd.
Superconducting magnet is an equipment generating high magnetic field by carrying high current density through superconducting wire. Therefore, while it generates constant field, large Lorentz force is exerted on the superconducting coil. Moreover, in the case of superconducting state disapearance in the whole magnet, called "quench", the magnetic field decreases to zero. In this case, large Lorentz force is exerted on the radiation shield arround superconducting coil by electromagnetic induction. In order to simulate these phenomena, it is required to couple electromagnetic field analysis with structure analysis.
We established a system to couple JMAG with Femap with NX Nastran, which is used in our company in the past. Today I would like to introduce examples using this system.

Efforts to make prevalent Magnetic Field Analysis-centered CAE in Miki Pulley Co., Ltd.
Mr. Shigeyuki Hattori, Development Department, MIKI PULLEY CO.,LTD
Since our company adopted JMAG in 1985, we have made an effort to spread its usage in the company. To begin with, there was a lack of understanding about CAE but rather than solving the technological issues surrounding FEM, the issue was how we could gain the understanding of our designers, so we had some problems spreading its usage. After that, we carried out validations of matches between analysis and experiments and by releasing the results, we were able to increase the trust placed in CAE in the company and after several years, we succeeded in spreading its usage. After that, we addressed issues such as developing our own design tools linked to Excel and aimed at improving operability and establishing a technical proficiency system for analytical staff in the company to raise skills, which has resulted in the present situation in which most of our electromagnetic device designers can use JMAG. In this presentation, I would like to introduce the process that took many years, and went from bitter experiences using CAE in the company to CAE becoming established.

Miniaturization Design Method and Performance Evaluation of Prototype Permanent-Magnet Synchronous Motor Optimally Designed by Thermo-Magnetic Field Coupling Analysis
Mr. Norihisa Iwasaki, Researcher, Research & Development Group, Hitachi Research Lab., Hitachi, Ltd
In recent years, lightweight and high-efficiency motors are required in order to respond to final marketing of Electric Vehicle and Hybrid Electric Vehicle in automobile and other industries. When a motor is downsized,there is no way to avoid a heat problem. For motors, disruption of a balance between losses and cooling performance leads to overheated temperature above an acceptable level and cause a technical malfunction. Hence, it is necessary to design motors by using integrated analysis considering optimization design technique of motor configuration and application of magnetic material and cooling technique. We will introduce results of the miniaturization design of a permanent-magnet synchronous motor, for which an optimal design technique based on thermo-magnetic field coupling analysis is used.

Development of Rare Earth Saving Magnet by Partial Diffusion Method
Mr. Masashi Inoue, Department 1, Technology Development Division 5, Honda R&D Co.,Ltd.Automobile R&D Center
Nd2Fe14B sintered magnets used in HEV, EV drive/power-generating motors have high magnetic flux density, which contributes to higher torque and miniaturization of the motors. Nd2Fe14B sintered magnets have Dy added to them to raise coercive force but in addition to being scarce rare-earth elements, production sites are limited so prices have risen in recent years.Therefore, technology is required that maintains demagnetization characteristics even if the amount of Dy used is reduced.
This time, in order to reduce the amount of Dy used even a little, JMAG's electromagnetic field analysis identified the demagnetization region of a motor targeted for development and quantified the expected coercive force to the magnet. As a result of this, a magnet with reduced rare earth was developed with the partial diffusion method which had as its concept of minimizing the amount of Dy used on the required locations and motor characteristic evaluations proved that the developed magnet's demagnetization characteristics are equivalent to that of traditional magnets.

Development of Advanced Keyless System Using Magnetic Field CAE.
AM. Toshihide Yoshida, Senior Staff, Electrical & Electronics Development Dept., Mazda Motor Corporation
Mazda has been promoting the introduction of systems using magnetic field communications, such as an advanced keyless system and immobilizer system, as products that enhance vehicle convenience. To ensure the communication performance of these systems, it is necessary to lay out the coil antenna for the use of magnetic transmission (hereinafter referred to as LF antenna) in an appropriate place of the vehicle. In the conventional design method, the layout of the LF antenna is determined experimentally by use of a prototype vehicle. To realize prototype-free development, however, it became necessary to develop the communication performance through virtual evaluations. This time, with use of the magnetic field simulation technology (hereinafter referred to as CAE), we have developed a technology to theoretically verify the communication performance of these systems.

Multi-physics simulation between JMAG and Abaqus, and its applicability to three-field simulation of cell phone speaker acoustic response
Mr. Brad Heers, Dassault Systemes SIMULIA
For many classes of EM problems, solving "only" the EM portion of the problem is not sufficient for the most accurate solutions-often additional physics must also be considered in order to be truly predictive. In particular, a number of interesting engineering problems may required structural computations that are beyond the capability of JMAG to solve on its own. This talk discusses recent advances that allow users to couple the field physics of both JMAG and Abaqus, and discusses various engineering problems which can be solved through this collaboration. A user example of a cell phone speaker is demonstrated, with a focus on three-field coupling between electro-magnetic (Lorenz) forces calculated with JMAG and the structural and acoustic regimes calculated within Abaqus.
