CEDRAT has announced the development of co‐simulation methods to tightly integrate its Flux electromagnetic simulation software with LMS Imagine.Lab Amesim, mechatronic simulation software for model‐based systems engineering. This connection between the two software is focused on electric machines and actuators but will also include generic co‐simulation features.

LMS Imagine.Lab Amesim

According to Vincent Marché, marketing director at CEDRAT, the multi‐domain approach enables users to accurately predict the behaviour of an entire system, within reasonable computational times.

Using a single model, he added, it is possible to include various physical effects and analyse how they interact with the other — like electromechanical and hydraulic ones, electronic drive, and so on.

Florent Pasteur, product manager at LMS Amesim Electromechanical solution, added that the co‐simulation with an electro‐technical FEA software expands the usage of LMS Amesim in the design cycle, which extends the mechatronic engineer’s range of possibilities to virtually design their devices with high-fidelity models embedded in systems simulation.

The solution will be available in version 12 of Flux in January 2015.

CEDRAT offers a full suite of tools for the design, the analysis and optimization of devices and systems for a wide range of electrical and mechatronic engineering applications.
CEDRAT’s flagship product is Flux 2D/3D, a software suite that specializes in electromagnetic and thermal analysis for modeling and optimizing electrical devices such as motors, transformers, actuators and sensors. Flux software is also relevant to equipment that is used in electric-fields studies, or heat-treatment applications.
4 modeling and simulation tools, 11 international partners, 35 years of experience and more than 50 engineers, developers and consultants. CEDRAT S.A. develops and markets leading computer-aided-engineering (CAE) simulation tools. These tools are used by manufacturers to accelerate and manage precise design solutions for devices such as motors, transformers, actuators, and sensors. CEDRAT has developed GOT-It, for device-and-systems optimisation; InCa3D, for conductor impedance and near-field simulation and Portunus, for mechatronic system simulation.
