Comprehensive Electric Motor Cooling Modeling


Date Recorded: Thursday, October 28, 2021
Hosts: Anthony Megel, Dr. Han Zhang
Duration: 31:52


SwRI is pleased to present a webinar showcasing the development and validation of a simulation workflow to predict the heat generation and cooling within a light-duty automotive electric motor. With the rapid increase in electrically powered vehicles, there is an increasing need in the modeling community to perform virtual simulations of the e-motors to determine the viability of the motor designs and their performance capabilities. These thermal predictions are vital to the design of automotive electric motors and their cooling systems. Additionally, this type of work can be used to assess the cooling performance of different oil blends with respect to varying fluid properties. This webinar will discuss the conjugate heat transfer (CHT) model development and test validation for a Tesla Model 3 electric motor.
