1 Noise & Vibrations

2 Content Inroduction Coupling LMS – Direct Method Rinciple Implementation Couping NASTRAN – Indirect Method

3 Introduction Today, motors are used in many applications close to the user. The noise pollutes the environment of the user. It is a nuisance that must be mitigated. Origin of the noise in motors: Driving electronic Torque ripple on gears Electromagnetic forces on stator Coils To reduce the noise level, a clear identification of the noise and its source is needed. FLUX is connected to vibrational tool

4 How it works Export magnetic forces computed by FLUX to mechanical CAE tools for vibro-acoustic studies. Flux applications: 2D Transient Magnetics 3D Transient Magnetics SKEW Transient Magnetics mechanical CAE tools: MSC NASTRAN/ACTRAN LMS Virtual.Lab

7 How it works in FLUX The main functions available in this new context are: Creation of new computation support. Computation of the magnetic forces. Results visualization Results export in multiphysics files to: MSC NASTRAN (.bulk) LMS Virtual.Lab (.unv)

Magnetic pressures: Maxwell tensor Only for the rotating machines. Computed in the air gap. On a circle (2D) or a cylinder (3D et Skew)

10 Coupling to MSC Nastran
Vibro-acoustic analysis must be performed on a full mechanical cycle (360°mech). The time sampling and the mesh must be set to take into account: space harmonics. time harmonics Computation in FLUX can be performed using periodicities. The signal is automatically rebuilt to the full mechanical cycle. Magnetic pressures will be calculated in the airgap, tangential and normal comp. Normal component: Tangential component:

Step Software Description 1 MSC NASTRAN Preparation of the MSC NASTRAN project: Standard description: geometry, physics (The same characteristics with the Flux project) and the mechanical mesh. Export the mechanical mesh as a (.bulk) file which be used in Flux. 2 Flux Preparation of the Flux project : Geometry, mesh, physics (Transient application) and solving. 3 During post-processing: Open mechanical analysis context. Import mechanical support built in NASTRAN Create computation support in the air gap. Calculate the magnetic forces on the computation support and project this forces on the nodes of the mechanical support. Visualize the magnetic forces. 4 Export magnetic forces to MSC NASTRAN as a (.bulk) file 5 Import the (.bulk) file containing the calculated magnetic forces in Flux and make the vibro-acoustic analysis.

Structural model + Modal basis Contains stator, windings, end caps, housing One homogenized but orthotropic material is chosen to model the stator (stiffness) In first instance, a modal basis is used to capture the dynamics of the structure

26 Coupling to Virtual.Lab
Forces mapping to structural model + Modal basis LMS Virtual.Lab maps the EM Forces conservatively from the EM surface to the coarser structural mesh surface A Fourier transform provides frequency domain forces These forces are used to compute the vibration response
