The 2021 Romax release sees new features across the simulation portfolio, with a particular focus on enabling our customers to democratize advanced technologies and to work in more collaborative ways. The key new features in Romax Evolve are:
Import Electric Machine geometry from JMAG-Express. Combine the power of Romax Evolve, a multi-fidelity environment for mechanical simulation of electric machines, with JMAG-Express, a concept-level online parametric design tool for motor electromagnetic performance, to understand motor and electric powertrain efficiency right from the start. This provides a fast, easy workflow at the concept and sizing development stage when design iterations need to be at their most efficient.
Inclusion of motor efficiency maps – calculate overall energy loss for an electrified driveline, combining electromagnetic and mechanical loss mechanisms.
VI-grade NVH simulator export – automatically calculate and export accurate electric machine noise and vibration predictions from Romax Evolve for use in the VI-grade NVH simulator.
Electric machine NVH workflow enhancements – including new visualisation tools, and better handling for skewed and eccentric rotors.
Show velocity on housing in Acoustic Analysis – to see the local structural deformations at the same time as the acoustic results and use this to interpret the source of any directional noise.
FE speed improvements – for a significant decrease in model preparation and solve times.
Hybrid bearings – with steel rings and ceramic rolling elements.
