Analytical torque computation – aka pen-and-paper stuff. Fast, efficient, extremely enlightening – and unfortunately fairly complex, more often than not.
Knowing the torque of an electric motor is kinda important, so it makes sense to double-check your results by using an alternative computation method.
The title says it all. 6 things you might not know about finite element analysis, but should. A bit tongue-in-cheek, but still valid info.
The SMEKlib library (open-source FEA for electrical machines in Matlab) just received a huge update. Here’s a brief rundown, plus associated rambling.
