On-demand Session 2: Raising the bar on rotating machinery performance engineering


On-demand Session 2:  Raising the bar on rotating machinery performance engineering

Motor, pump, and compressor manufacturers face more competition than ever. New suppliers are coming into the market from low-cost countries, putting pressure on prices and your overall bottom line. To stay competitive, you need to innovate and differentiate your products from the commodities and develop new capabilities that your customers value. Achieving innovation in a fast-moving market for complex products is a challenge you need to overcome.

Simulation is a key to unlocking innovation and doing it faster than your competition can. Simulation lets you quickly test new design ideas before ever cutting a physical prototype. This means you can rapidly evaluate many new design variants to find the right design for your application.

Physical testing still plays a role to meet regulations, but it is also used to validate and fine-tune your simulation models.

Story line:

During this webinar we will be focusing on two common areas of rotating equipment.

Firstly, we will explore the best practices for designing and optimizing the performance of rotating electric motors. Simulation and testing solutions provide multi-physics libraries to efficiently analyze the electric motor design choices, evaluate real performance when subjected to actual duty-cycle before prototyping.

You will learn:

  • Analyze electromagnetic, thermal, NVH, and system-level integration issues of electric motor
  • Reduce industrial electric motor prototype costs and design times through a multi-disciplinary approach covering concept design to control validation
  • Perform sensitivity and multi-objective optimization of models to meet all the performance requirements

Secondly, we will investigate the best simulation practices for ensuring the safe & reliable operation of pumps and compressors.

You will learn:

  • Finite element simulation can effectively predict the structural performance of the pump, compressor, and its associated housing
  • The engineering process integrates CAD with CAE and links to physical testing
  • Manufacturers of pumps and compressors ensure the structural integrity of the machine and its components under critical load scenarios
  • To reliably predict noise and vibrations due to structural dynamics of the housing during the design phase
