MotorSolve | IM Features

MotorSolve IM is the easy-to-use software for modeling, simulating and predicting the performance of induction motors. Each feature of the software has been tailored with a motor designer's needs in mind, making it easy to analyze and optimize any rotating electric machine.

The rapid and accurate results are based on automated FEA simulations. There are several analysis methods included, which gives the user control over the level of refinement (accuracy vs time). Read more about the analysis types included in MotorSolve IM.

Templates & Design Parameters

  • Extensive template library of bar and wound type rotors
  • Interior and exterior rotors
  • All standard slot types (square, round, slotless, parallel tooth, etc) are included
  • Custom rotor and stator geometries can be imported

Design Parameters
