How to set-up the slots?

As the slots are part of the machine, to set them up you need to edit your machine file. The corresponding variables can be found in the section "Stator Core" and "Rotor Core". These variables will allow you to design a slot according to a template. This slot will then be repeated along the airgap according to Input.Geometry.Zs for the stator and Input.Geometry.Zr for the rotor.

The first step to set-up your slot is to choose its shape within the available ones. As the actual shape of the slot may change according to its parameters There is the list of all the slot template available in MANATEE (Click on the shape you want to use to know how to configure it):
