How to set-up the winding?

To set-up your winding, there are 3 steps :

Winding Pattern

The first one is to define how your winding is placed in your slot. MANATEE includes several winding algorithms that automatically generate winding distribution. Here is the list of the available algorithms :

Double layer non-overlapping "concentrated" tooth winding "all teeth wound", orthoradial coil superposition (Type 1)
Double layer non-overlapping "concentrated" tooth winding "all teeth wound", orthoradial coil superposition (Type 1)
Single layer non-overlapping "concentrated" tooth winding "alternate teeth wound" (Type 2)
Single layer non-overlapping "concentrated" tooth winding "alternate teeth wound" (Type 2)
Double layer overlapping integral distributed winding, radial coil superposition (Type 3)
Double layer overlapping integral distributed winding, radial coil superposition (Type 3)
Single layer overlapping integral distributed winding (Type 4)
Single layer overlapping integral distributed winding (Type 4)
150. Double layer non-overlapping "concentrated" tooth winding "all teeth wound", radial coil superposition (Type 5)
Double layer non-overlapping "concentrated" tooth winding "all teeth wound", radial coil superposition (Type 5)

To use one of them, one needs to set Input.Magnetics.type_winding1 to the correct type number.

If necessary you can directly define your own winding connection matrix, or import a winding file defined with Koil software. You can also ask for new algorithms through the contact page.

Winding Circuit Parameters

For the second step, you have to specify the winding parameters according to the following definition (numerical values are just indicative) :

Conductor Geometry

The final step is to specify the shape of the conductor that compose the winding. There are two available shapes in MANATEE (Click on the image to know how to define them) :
