### MANATEE new features

Our team is working on the next release of MANATEE (1.06.01). It will include the following new features :

- Possibility to select the
**Material inside a library**(instead of setting every parameter in every machine) - Possibility to
**export the input and output variables**(or any user-defined quantity based on a Matlab script) in a single Excel sheet using a**template** - New rotor geometry available for interior PMSM (Slot 50)
- Possibility to calculate the number of turns based on a
**user-defined slot fill factor** - Basic
**thermal model**is available based on reference loss and temperature rise - Text output is now displayed with
**several colors**(to highlight the warnings) - Possibility to calculate the
**flux inside the magnet**for subdomain models

### Subdomain model for interior PMSM

The accuracy and computing time performance of subdomain modelling technique has been successfully applied to** interior magnet topologies ** (based on the tutorial prius 2004 machine). This is done by using a single non-linear magnetostatic simulation in FEMM (using automated coupling between MANATEE and FEMM) to find the magnetization properties of an **equivalent surface magnet**.

This way the time and angular airgap flux distribution in radial & tangential directions can be **calculated in a few seconds** including saturation effect of the rotor.

Assuming a linear superposition of armature and magnet field, the full load airgap flux distribution can also be calculated.

### 5D Data visualization tool

A dedicated graphical interface has been developed to efficiently analyze optimization and sensitivity analysis results. It consists in visualizing the obtained designs as 3D or 2D projections in the design and/or response variable spaces. **5 dimensions can be potentially displayed**: 3 using the three axes of the 3D scatter plot, and 2 using the point size and color.

A correspondence is made between all the different projection graphs to help the user identify a given design in the different clouds of points. **Filters can be defined** to select a part of the data using MANATEE design constraints that have been defined during the simulation set-up (e.g. maximum temperature), or user-defined inequality constraints.
