Uncertainties in the Design Space of Electrical Machines – All the Things We Guess At

Nov 13th 2024 - Nov 13th 2024

Coventry, United Kingdom

Updated 2.7.24

Registration opening soon

In any design project tools, teaching, and CAD will only take you so far. But in all elements of design, there are many additional aspects which a successful designer guesstimates to start with or they ‘just know’ what to do with to complete the project.

As the design iterates, initial assumptions can be tested numerically/analytically or reinforced by gethering additional information. The effect of the assumptions can be gauged in the electromagnetic and thermal models.

This workshop will talk about some of these additional factors, discussing and advising on how to fill the gap between the tools, etc and a successfully completed design.
