Portunus is a system simulator that has been developed especially for the calculation of mechatronic systems. Possible applications range from the simulation of drive systems and switched mode power supplies to investigation of the heating of electronic components.

Several description approaches (network, block diagram, state machine) are available for the simulation of electrical, mechanical and thermal systems. With Portunus you may run different analysis types (simulations in the time and frequency domain, calculation of steady-state and operating point). The effect of parameter variations may be calculated and displayed automatically. Alternatively, it can be visualized using the interactive capabilities of the software.

Portunus comes with a comprehensive model library which already includes simulation models of common electrical machines and power electronic topologies. The available interfaces expand the functionality of Portunus, e.g. to provide the possibility of the validation of microcontroller source code.

And ergonomic graphical user interface allows the comfortable description of the system to be modelled. The implemented sub-sheet technology makes it possible to separate sub-systems and therefore improve the clarity of the system representation. Portunus is not only the ideal tool for the development of new products; it provides exciting opportunities for education and training purposes as well.

Magsoft Corporation - SPEED

Figure 1: Setup the simulation in the Outline Editor Figure 2: Review the simulation results with the Torque-Speed Curve Figure 3: Review the simulation results in the Design Sheet. We are confident that their SPEED motor design software will be an asset to your electric machine design efforts. It runs on the IBM PC platform, so it is easy to equip multiple users in one company, including laptop users.


Magsoft Corporation - Motor CAD

Simulations require the 3D geometry description of each component within the machine, the physical material properties of the components, the losses or sources or heat and any desired cooling configurations. Motor-CAD enables you to quickly evaluate the thermal sensitivies within a particular machine, and to identify the manner in which the machine responds to a variety of cooling configurations.

Finally, in order to provide you with the best simulation results in the shortest amount of computation time, Flux development continues to uncover formulations for both 2D specific and 3D specific activities independently. Flux then solves for the requested physics and provides one with multiple ways to scrutinize the solution, and to review the success of the idea.
