If you are interested in the modeling of electric motors, then tune into this webinar with guest speaker Omar Laldin from the Electromagnetic Motor Design Group at Faraday Future.
Increasing interest in vehicle electrification has imposed new challenges in the electric motor design field, primarily resulting from variable torque requirements over a wide speed range. Furthermore, motors are required to operate efficiently at each torque and speed to maximize the range of the vehicle. These challenges prompt the need for highly advanced and accurate analysis techniques, which often combine finite element analysis (FEA) and analytical approaches.
In this webinar, we will focus on the FEA component of evaluating a three-phase electric motor. You will get a live demonstration of setting up a parameterized model in COMSOL Multiphysics® of a nonlinear-surface permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM), including the current commands from which a flux-linkage map can be built and the peak torque capability can be determined. You can ask questions at the end of the webinar during the Q&A session.
Omar Laldin, Head of the Electromagnetic (EM) Motor Design Group, Farady Future, Inc.
Omar Laldin is the head of the Electromagnetic (EM) Motor Design Group at Faraday Future, Inc. He has over 8 years of accumulated industrial experience in power conversion technologies (e.g. GE, ABB, Infineon, etc.). He has a PhD in the design of electric machinery from Purdue University, resulting in over 13 years of extensive R&D experience across 5 different countries. He is dedicated to bringing fresh ideas and novel state-of-the-art machine design approaches to industry, which are founded on population-based optimization, analytical methods, magnetic equivalent circuit networks, and finite element analysis. He has used these tools to design generators for all-electric ships, underwater tidal generators, and traction motors for automotive electric vehicles with significant reductions in mass, cost, and/or volume.
