  • The team spent the first semester of the project designing and conducting component-level testing. EMS was used the most in the first semester to support electromagnet configurations and visualizations for our faculty and advisors. We successfully displayed the representative SOLIDWORKS EMS model in real life through testing at a reduced scale with low power input. In the Spring semester, we finalized our design with an updated EMS model and developed a dynamic electromagnetic active damping system that responds to displacement data and increases/decreases force with current supply. The team greatly benefited from using the EMS software and would highly recommend its use to anyone working with electromagnets.

    Team 3, a mechanical engineering senior design team at Virginia Tech, used EMWorks’s software, EMS, to simulate magnetic force and visualize the magnetic field in an active electromagnetic damping system for vibration testing. EMS helped us design our Lorentz force electromagnet to determine the strength of the system. We augmented our power input and placed our permanent magnets to optimize force output. EMS was easy to update through our many iterations of SOLIDWORKS models. We produced nearly a dozen different CAD configurations and tested several of them, leveraging theoretical EMS models and practical setups with 3D printed parts.

    We, Chicago Hyperloop, are thrilled to express our gratitude to Emworks for their exceptional software that has revolutionized our approach to hyperloop development. As an organization dedicated to innovating the future of transportation, we have found EMWorks’ software to be an indispensable tool in our pursuit of creating a safer, smarter, faster, and cleaner hyperloop system.

    Our primary goal is to build and race a Hyperloop pod at the upcoming Canadian Hyperloop Conference. To achieve this, we need to design and construct a linear induction motor capable of efficient electromagnetic levitation and propulsion. We tried Ansys and Comsol, but they are challenging and difficult to navigate.

    EMWorks’ software has completely transformed our engineering process. Its intuitive user interface has significantly reduced the time spent on learning and troubleshooting, allowing us to focus on engineering. The software's ability to plot data on graphs and visualize simulations has been instrumental in creating an engaging and informative presentation. With Emworks, we can easily incorporate meaningful graphs and images into our materials, effectively conveying complex concepts to judges.

    The direct CAD integration enables us to perform simulations directly within Inventor, Emworks has eliminated the need for file transfers and conversions. This allows us to create a more seamless workflow for our team. EMWorks’ software has truly become an extension of our design environment.

    We cannot overstate the value that Emworks has brought to our organization. With their top-of-the-line software, we can quickly simulate, optimize and design various components of our pod, propelling us closer to victory. Emworks has become an indispensable ally in our journey toward innovation and progress. We wholeheartedly recommend EMWorks’ software for any team engaged in any kind of electromagnetic design.

  • I am currently a high school student completing a research paper on the Pseudo-Direct Drive. A motor that has an inherent magnetic gearbox inside. EMWorks has been brilliant for me, allowing me to simulate my project with high accuracy and quickly. Also, it was perfectly integrated into Solidworks, as this project requires a wide variety of features that work seamlessly.

  • I am writing this testimonial to express my satisfaction with the EMS add-on for Inventor. As an engineer passionate about exploring the world of magnetics, I have been searching for a solution to accelerate one magnet with another magnet and precisely compute the force between them that is generated as it moves through a coil. The first aspect that struck me about EMS is its integration with Autodesk Inventor. The integration is incredibly smooth, allowing me to harness the full power of EMS without ever having to leave the Inventor environment. One of the standout features of EMS is its ability to accurately simulate and analyze magnetic fields. With this tool, I was able to simulate the interaction between magnets and calculate the forces.

    The software's advanced algorithms and intuitive interface made it easy for me to set up complex simulations and obtain insightful results. I was able to visualize magnetic fields and flux densities, which was great. I could analyze the forces generated at different positions, study the variation of magnetic flux, and evaluate the impact of different parameters on the overall system performance. The software supports a wide range of magnet types, including permanent magnets and electromagnets, and has different coil configurations and materials. This flexibility allows me to explore various design possibilities and optimize systems for maximum performance.

    The customer support provided by the Academic Team has also been exemplary. Their prompt and knowledgeable assistance ensured that I could quickly overcome my problems. In conclusion, EMS for Inventor is a very nice tool that has transformed the way I approach magnetism analysis. I wholeheartedly recommend EMS to anyone seeking a comprehensive and reliable solution for magnetism analysis.

  • I am an undergraduate Mechatronics Engineering student at VIT University, Chennai, India. A few months ago, I got the opportunity to work on research on wireless charging technologies for electric vehicles (EVs). After doing a study of the existing literature in this field, my faculty guide and I decided to do a comparison study on different shapes of coils used for wireless power transfer for EV charging. As EV charging is a high-power application, charging efficiency is a very important factor in the implementation of wireless charging systems. So, to perform the simulation study, I researched different software options and their benefits. Even though I found a few other free or easily available software programs, I found EMWorks EMS to be the most suitable one for my application, especially in terms of ease of use and simple workflow. Also, another major benefit was the integration with Solidworks. Since Solidworks is our primary 3D CAD software, we could directly simulate the models, unlike some other software tools, which require the model to be exported in a particular format and then imported into the simulation software. So any changes I made to the SolidWorks model were immediately reflected in EMS.

    Once I imported my models, I was able to quickly create an AC Magnetic study and configure the material properties and the coil parameters. Also, since EMS has Litz wire coils, it provides a very accurate simulation. Once the parameters were set up, the simulation parameters were configured. The parameterization option allowed me to set up multiple scenarios and simulate them all together, which saved a lot of time. I generated about 30 scenarios and simulated them as a batch process. I was able to easily plot the required output variables against these input parameters from the results table. I would like to conclude by expressing my satisfaction with this software for my research, and I look forward to working with EMWorks in the future too.
