Ansys Motor-CAD

Ansys Motor-CAD is a best-in-class, dedicated tool for design and multiphysics analysis of electrical machines across the full operating range.

Electric Machine Design Software

Motor-CAD software’s four integrated modules—EMag, Therm, Lab, Mech—enable multiphysics calculations to be performed quickly and iteratively, so users can get from concept to final design in less time. Motor-CAD models can be exported to other Ansys tools for more detailed high-fidelity analyses, using automated workflows.
