New features

Ansys Maxwell includes 3-D/2-D magnetic transient, AC electromagnetic, magnetostatic, electrostatic, DC conduction and electric transient solvers.

Slice-only Technology

Slice-only technology enables a cyclic repeatability simulation technique for electric motor applications. The analysis has been improved by efficiently solving just a slice of the motor, employing non-planar boundary conditions, using symmetric mesh and replicating results to the full model.

Induction Machine

Induction Machine ROM-based Efficiency Map – Reduced Order Modeling in the electric machine toolkit shrinks an FEA solution to a circuit simulation and improves performance.

Quasi Static Solvers

Performance improvements for quasi-static solvers help PCB simulations where the conduction path includes complex geometry, reducing processing from hours to minutes.

Functional Safety Compliance

Ansys Maxwell helps perform safety analysis and design according to ISO 26262 for electrical and electronic (E/E) systems. Safety is one of the critical issues in developing electric motors used in passenger road vehicles.
