1. Model-Based Development and efficiency maps
In MBD, it is necessary to evaluate devices characteristics without having to wait for the manufacturing of a prototype. The motor efficiency map is one of the important evaluation items in motor drive system development. Therefore, it is necessary to be able to obtain the motor efficiency map with high accuracy using FEA simulation.
However, if we talk about an efficiency map evaluation, depending on the development stage the accuracy and calculation costs of the efficiency map are evaluated differently. Here, we consider the efficiency map evaluation in the following two stages:
