Since the invention of the first electric machine in 1819, progress and development of electric machines has not ceased, especially with the advent of new materials and advances in electronics power control systems. The principle of an electrical machine is based on the conversion of mechanical energy into electrical energy motor operation or inverse generating operation.

A fast way to enter motor models in Flux is to use overlays. These are templates based on dialog boxes, with many different options that will help to enter conventional devices. The existing library of 2D motor overlays, created in the 1990s, is now extended to 3D for BPM machines. The template generates automatically a fully parametric geometry including the infinite region, symmetries and periodicities; it creates the mesh, regions and coils and movement definition. It also proposes typical winding schemes that will generate the 3D coils of the machine in a few clicks. Users are ready to solve cases within minutes. It is very useful to quickly assess whether such-and-such a machine structure can deliver the performance you need.
