MANATEE v1.07.02

MANATEE software logo

The version v1.07.02 of MANATEE software dedicated to the electromagnetic and NVH design of electric motors has been released the 2nd of October 2018.

Key features

Simulation workflow
  • Non linear run-up is now handled both in transient and quasi static variable speed modes
  • Transient mode is available for all electromagnetic model types
  • Improvement of current / voltage import function (Id/Iq point is respected)
Geometry
  • Simplified electrical machine scripts default_PMSM.m and default_SCIM.m
Electrical
  • Calculation of flux linkage maps as a function of Id/Iq to be used in equivalent circuit
  • Improvement of voltage/current PWM waveform generation with analytical hamronics
  • Improve support for dual three-phase machines
Electromagnetics
  • Coupling with XFEMM (Input.Simu.is_xfemm in default_proj) for Linux compatibility
  • Torque ripple now calculated during spectrogram synthesis
Structural mechanics
  • Modulation effect available in magnetic lumped tooth force calculation
  • Bending moment at tooth tips is calculated
  • type_mass_model for ansys coupling to take into account the mass of the winding or magnet in the lamination density

Post-Processing

  • Plot 3D quiver of FrFt tooth forces (useful for skew effect visualization)

New validation cases

  • ALG_044: Comparison between transient operation and spectrogram synthesis on open circuit case of tuto_IPMSM_001
  • ALG_045: Import current waveform and check rotor position
  • ALG_046: Non-linear run-up

Miscellaneous

  • Blackman windowing now available
  • Linux compatibility checked
  • Help text for plot command improved
  • init_machine and init_proj encrypted files prevent modifications of default project and machine files
