The reduction of carbon emission and ensuring healthy and sustainable development of the energy landscape present the main topic treated over the past decades. Electric machines play a crucial role to achieve net zero carbon footprint as being used in a variety of applications from electric vehicles to renewable energy generation [1]. Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machines PMSMs have been used widely in such applications thanks to their high efficiency and high-power density [2]. According to the literature, many researches focused on the performance analysis of external rotor PMSMs according to the design specifications [3] [4] [5].

In this application note, a PM magnet axial flux generator is studied under load and no-load conditions. To perform this analysis we used EMS coupled with SOLIDWORKS Motion

Battery and electric motor are the main keys of any zero-gas emissions vehicle. Hence, engineers, researchers and labs are working to design and develop more reliable products that could meet any user requirements

This example shows the analysis study for a 6/4 switched reluctance motor, shown in Figure 1, using EMS inside Autodesk Inventor.

Linear actuators have many applications ranging from domestic to industrial. Their role consists of converting many forms of energy such as electrical energy, hydraulic energy etc to a mechanical linear motion.

Permanent Magnet couplings (or couplers) are used to transmit torque from a primary driver to a secondary follower without any mechanical contact. Many industrial applications are based on such transmission system that doesn`t need any external electrical circuit for motors and propellers. They are especially used for high security applications and in sealed equipment for transmissions through walls.

Renewable energy, known also as green or clean energy, is derived from natural processes that are regenerative over short periods of time and cannot be depleted.
