Objectives

Acoustic noise and vibration levels must be carried with fine discretization speed to catch all resonances. This module of MANATEE software speeds-up set-up and post processing of variable-speed e-NVH calculations using quasi-static approach.

Description

The modules VAR.QS compiles several fixed-speed steady state electromagnetic and vibroacoustic simulations with varying supply based on specified control strategy (e.g. constant flux, torque/speed curve, import of current etc), with the possibility to model non-linear run-ups.

All NVH post processing of WF.BS module are extended to variable speed (overall SPL/SWL as a function of speed, noise and vibration waterfalls or spectrograms, order tracking analysis, variable speed modal participation factors, force / vibration / noise spatiograms, operational deflection shapes).

Technical details

Contrary to transient approach of VAR.TR module, all the quantities are here assumed to be in steady state and a Fast Fourier Transform is used. Windowing or anti-aliasing filters can be used to reduce spectral leakage.

Graphical post-processing
