Motors, Generators and Actuators

Electron Energy magnets and assemblies are used in sophisticated, performance-critical components of advanced technology systems, such as motors, generators, and actuators.

EEC conducts finite element analysis (FEA) for the design and performance prediction of various PM rotating machines, e.g. brushless DC/AC motors, brushed DC motors, interior PM motors, and synchronous motors.

FEA enables us to evaluate new topologies to meet the desired power requirements, torque profile with low torque ripple, back EMF waveform, and other motor performance characteristics. EEC has designed a brushless interior PM motor with high saliency ratio for a NASA SBIR Phase II program.

A variety of generator designs also have been analyzed at EEC, using 3D FEA, including axial and radial field generators.
