TECHNO-FRONTIER 2012 MOTORTECH JAPAN 2012 icon-external-link  Exhibition

July 2, 2012 The event outline has been released.


Accurate modeling is required to correctly analyze and capture complex phenomena occurring in motors. JMAG-Designer offers innovative solutions for incorporating various material properties and a broad-range of complex phenomena from magnetic field analyses to thermal and structural analysis.

The features built into JMAG-Designer that assist in a standardizing the design process using features and tools for automation can be used to investigate a wide-range of fields in addition to motor design using links to control simulators and other powerful features.

At the booth, we will introduce the latest version of JMAG-Designer released in June, as well as motor simulation technology headed by JSOL.
A reach variety of presentations and demonstrations will also be provided at the exhibition.
We look forward to seeing you there.

Exhibition Outline


The JMAG engineers will present JMAG-Designer through various demonstrations. These comprehensive examples will only be provided at the MOTORTECH JAPAN 2012. Don’t miss it.(The presentations will be in Japanese)

01: Why JMAG is essential for PM motor design
JMAG is necessary for PM motor design. Permanent magnet motors are complex because they use reluctance torque and their characteristics are affected by magnetic saturation. JMAG allows you to predict these characteristics with precision.
02: Using JMAG for limit state design in induction motors
Anxiety over rare earth supplies has cast the spotlight on induction motors as substitutes for drive motors in EVs and HEVs, which used to be monopolized by PM synchronous motors that use rare earth permanent magnets. These fields require high efficiency and output density, which in turn require new and innovative limit state designs for induction motors. JMAG contributes to induction motor limit state designs.
03: Switched reluctance motor designs using JMAG
Anxiety over rare earth supplies has cast the spotlight on SR motors, which do not use rare earths. The magnetic circuit in an SR motor is incredibly nonlinear, so a design that uses a magnetic field analysis is best because desktop calculations can be difficult. JMAG also provides a high fidelity plant model for SR motor control design.
04: Introduction of an analysis case study of a generator
Introducing a case study of a generator analysis using JMAG.
05: Using CAE to contribute to noise reduction in electrical equipment
Requirements are getting stricter in electrical equipment noise and vibration reduction, making it difficult to achieve balance with output and efficiency. JMAG supports the designers who are grappling with these kinds of problems.
06: Why do I need FEA for a power transformer performance evaluation?
Superimposed DC characteristics, leakage inductance, loss, and efficiency are all evaluation guidelines that have been around for a long time. However, FEA like JMAG is vital to accurately evaluate these guidelines at the step before the design. In this seminar we will explain the necessity of FEA by looking at why forecast evaluations of these guidelines are so difficult.
07: CAE techniques that support improvements in manufacturing technology
There has been remarkable progress in EV/HEV part performance, but even greater speeds and lower costs are required. Manufacturing technology can make a big contribution in this area. JMAG can be used to study manufacturing processes that use electromagnetic fields in addition to equipment design.
08: How far can motor analysis go?
Do motor evaluations end once basic characteristics like cogging torque and N-T curves have been analyzed? Using JMAG makes it possible to solve more difficult phenomena in greater detail.
09: The value of JMAG-RT, the high fidelity MBD tool
JMAG-RT consists of a high fidelity motor model and the framework that provides it. JMAG-RT allows you to simulate a motor’s characteristics accurately for a control design that provides maximum utilization of the motor’s features and abilities.
10: Motor analysis starting with JMAG-Express
JMAG-Express and JMAG-SuperExpress are tools for concept study and basic characteristic confirmation in a motor design. They provide iron loss and efficiency maps from the torque curve as reports. Try its powerful evaluation functions and simple operations for yourself.
11: Introducing a fast, accurate JMAG electromagnetic field simulation using the latest technology
JMAG provides fast and accurate calculations for electromagnetic field simulations. It implements automatic meshing and solution algorithms that fit your analysis target and objective, and its calculation engine maintains accuracy while achieving high speed by maximizing your hardware’s capabilities. We will introduce an analysis example of a rotating machine that uses JMAG’s cutting-edge technology.
